Visitor Tips and News About Only McDonald's with Green Arches
Stopped at the jade arches for some fries for the road dog. Sedona got it right asking McDonald's to conform to the rules making it the most visually non offensive fast food joint in the southwest. Now if they only offered veggie burgers... I highly recommend a "drive-thru" Sedona![sheisgros, 12/02/2013]

The only McDonald's to visit on St. Patrick's Day.
I saw your photo of the sign promoting the Green McDonald's arches but noticed it didn't actually include a picture of the sign. Well, here you go![Jason Shultz, 01/24/2008]
Oh how cruel is this town to a noble fast food brand.
Sedona is rather trippy. To preserve the city's Kachina purity, McDonald's was begrudgingly allowed to build ONLY if they agreed to modify the world's most recognizable brand by changing their famous golden arches to Desert Teal. The height of hubris?[Kim Pitzer, 04/14/2002]
Gah. We're sure McD's has bent over for other toney muncipalities. It's nice how a nearby town helps carry the promotional burden of such a wonder.
