So grab that someone special and cozy up for the most romantic show on earth. Here are the top places across Arizona to experience the sunset:
Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park:
The iconic rock formations in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park are the perfect spot to experience an “Arizona” sunset. The desert colors come to life during dusk!
Gates Pass, Tucson:
If you find yourself in Tucson on Valentine’s day, be sure to head west for sunset. Just west of town you will find Gates Pass. This is the perfect nook to overlook Old Tucson Studios and hundreds of cacti as you experience the breathtaking sunset.
Hole in the Rock, Phoenix:
Any Phoenix local will tell you Hole in the rock is one of the best places to view the sunset. Just inside of Papago Park is this stunning rock formation. Perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day Sun Set.
Airport Mesa, Sedona
Sedona is FULL of beautiful places to catch the sunset. The red rock of Sedona radiates during these dusk hours. Airport Mesa is one of the most popular spots in Sedona. It showcases the stunning red rock mountains and is a short walk to the top of the Mesa. A Valentines Sedona Sunset totally bucket list worthy.
JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort and Spa:
There are so many amazing resorts across Arizona – but this one has the perfect patio for the sunsets. This patio is very unique and overlooks the beautiful desert landscape. This is perfect if you do not want to strap on your hiking boots and want to enjoy the sunset with a drink in hand.
