Best Driving Route Between Austin and Sedona

places

#1

We are planning a trip West during which we will be visiting friends in Austin and then driving back to Sedona over a period of 2 or 3 days.

  1. Which routes would be the most scenic and interesting to take?
  2. What cities (towns) would offer the best hotels and restaurants?
  3. Is Austin to Sedona too long to drive in 2 days?
