  • A wonderful way to catch the Sedona sunset high in the sky. We explored on a Friday night. It was a bit crowded but room there was room for everybody.  more »
  • As we were leaving Sedona we decided to drive up Airport Road for the scenic overlook. You do have to pay for parking ($3), but it was worth it for the 15 minutes we spent there. You are high on a hil...  more »
  • Worth the drive up to as you can see forever. I think would also be a great place for sunset. There is also a vortex near by that you can hike up to.  more »

  • Gets crowded for sunset viewing, but paid "Airport parking" across the street is usually available. If I remember correctly, we paid something like $3 or $5 flat rate. There are limited other pullouts along the way, but you'd have to come pretty early to snag a spot there. Nice view over the Sedona valley facing West into the sunset and to your right the reflections in the red rock formations towards the East of Sedona. Go here for a quick drivable view of the sunset, but don't expect solitude.
  • You might think that stopping at a scenic overlook is beneath your visitor's mentality, however you are so wrong. So, so wrong. If there is any easy to reach, mind-blowing vista in Sedona better than the airport overlook, please send me there. Sure, you can climb Bell Rock and watch the sunset or join me at Cathedral Rock for Full Moon drumming and have a guaranteed, one-of-a-kind experience, but the Airport Overlook is a drive-up and get-out affair that offers a unique view of Sedona nestled below while surrounded by the countless, massive Red Rock formations that brought you here in the first place. Take your selfies here and post them everywhere for your friends to be dazzled by them. Come early in the morning for dynamic photographs. Get married a few hundred yards away at the Masonic Lodge's lookout where Barry Goldwater hosted Easter Sunrise service for many years. Watch sunset with 100 other people. Stay at the Airport Lodge and walk over to the Overlook whenever you feel like it. I bet you'll be glad you did.
  • Fairly pretty, but very crowded and you have to pay for parking. The view is nice, but better can be had elsewhere.
  • The view was elevated, but the viewing area is not maintained. Overgrown bushes and trees block a majority of the view of the city and red rock cliff faces. There are better places for sunset especially since parking is charged for a blocked view and crowded area.
  • Very awesome high lookout, did have to pay for parking and a donation bin at the lookout area. Great view and a trail to access another spot.
