Things to do when it is Raining in Sedona, Arizona

Best Western Plus Inn of Sedona

Having fun when it’s raining in Sedona, AZ

Monsoon season is upon us in the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, AZ. While it is true Sedona can see some heavy rains during monsoon season, they very seldom last the whole day. This is the dessert, so we are happy to see the rain, but often our guests and visitors are not. Who could blame them? I would rather be out hiking in the red rocks too! The rains during monsoon season normally hit us in the afternoon or early evening, which is another reason we suggest hiking adventures in the early morning… but then what? The number #1 question we get during this season is; ‘what is there to do when it rains?’

Cinema at the Mary D, Fisher Theatre

Get out of the rain and enjoy a flick at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre!

Like we have said before, it’s very seldom that the rain lasts more than a couple of hours. Sometimes it only hangs around for about 30 minutes. We highly suggest grabbing your camera and heading out after the rain. The red rocks are even more majestic after the washing. You might even catch a rainbow or two arching over the formations. I will have to admit, when the rain is gentle and there is no lightning in the sky you can often find me on the Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179) taking shots of the storm clouds over the red rocks.
