Wow, it is hard to believe that it is already the weekend before Christmas! My holiday shopping is almost done, my dinner planned and I am so ready to relax and enjoy this festive weekend. If you are going to be visiting Sedona and the Verde Valley this weekend and need to finish up your holiday shopping I highly suggest visiting Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village for their Holiday Sweet Stroll on Saturday! You will find some unique and fun gifts, holiday treats, giveaways and some great discount offers. Even if you have finished your shopping I would still go to the art village and check out the holiday decor, it is beautiful.

If you are traveling with your kids I would definitely visit the Sedona Heritage Museum on Sunday for a very special reading of the Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol”. Tinsel Town at Posse Grounds will also be open for the weekend and I hear through the grapevine that Santa will be stopping by today, December 19th! If you enjoy vintage holiday decor, mixed in with some history, I would visit the Fort Verde State Historical Park in Camp Verde and take in the beautiful Victorian decorations. Above all else this weekend, enjoy your family and take in all the warmth and love this season brings.
