Welcome to our Yay Travel Destination series featuring some of the coolest places we’ve visited that we’d like you to know about, beginning with the breathtaking Sedona, Arizona.

Paula Hamby, co-owner of OKC Date Planners, explored Sedona, AZ, dubbed by their tourism as “the most beautiful place on Earth” for her anniversary trip with her husband during the pandemic. Paula is normally a go-to beach chick, but, when in Sedona, she also discovered inspiration for her date planning business she began shortly after.

While in Sedona, they wanted to explore and enjoy the outdoors as much as they could. They took a hot air balloon ride over the canyons, hiked seven miles to the famous Devil’s Bridge, star gazed, were blessed by a local native American in a crystal grotto, and received VIP treatment at their anniversary dinner as the chef gifted them a signed copy of his cookbook.

Overall, Paula calls the trip to Sedona “perfect” and “amazing”.

Paula is a date-planning expert and is inspired to help people now plan dates and activities in the beautiful town of Sedona. She believes that new experiences, unique opportunities, and fun adventures bring excitement into relationships.

Sedona, AZ is a tourist, and ‘resort’ town known for its beautiful views, resorts, hiking, canyons and considered the ‘paradise’ of northern Arizona. It’s located about 900 miles from Oklahoma City. Learn more at VisitSedona.com.
