Kings Ransom Sedona Hotels presents
FINE, FUN, and FANTASTIC Events and
Things To Do in Sedona, Arizona!
The Monsoons are almost over. Time to have some fun in Sedona...
Don't get us wrong. We love our monsoons. They bring us a little rain, which the plants need, and they bring us some cooling relief from the heat, which we LOVE! Plus, the skies are dramatic and the photography is gorgeous. It doesn't rain much in Sedona, but when it does, it is a treat.
But, Fall is coming soon and with it comes lots of things to do in and around Sedona. If you are bored and want to hit the road, come on up (or down... or over) to Sedona for a 3-4 day getaway (or longer!). Get $10.00 off per room night, Sunday through Thursday! Enjoy cooler weather, nice hotel rooms, friendly people, and events for visitors and locals alike.
Here's how to get your special rate. Say: “I'm Fine, Fun, and Fantastic” when you call in to make your reservation and we will give you $10 off per night on any weekday reservation (Sunday through Thursday night) using our already low internet rates. Call 1-877-480-0044!
