Sedona, Arizona

Here's a sample of just a few of the ways to experience Sedona.  For more Sedona day trip or vacation ideas, visit Sedona.net.

  • Take a Jeep or Hummer tour and see parts of the desert you may not have an opportunity to see otherwise.
  • Revitalize your body and spirit with a massage, facial, beauty treatment at a day spa or resort spa.
  • Take a guided vortex hike: Experience areas of concentrated energy rising from the earth. You may feel a range of sensations from a slight tingling on exposed skin, to a vibration emanating from the ground when you encounter a vortex.  Most often a vortex creates a palpable sensation across the nape of the neck and shoulder blades.
  • Ride the Sedona Trolley: A city and scenic tour on the Sedona Trolley is "The Best First Thing to Do in Sedona!"
  • Visit Red Rock Crossing: One of the most photographed scenes in the southwest is towering Cathedral Rock reflected in the waters of Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing. It should come as no surprise, then, that the picnic area located at that same site is as popular as it is beautiful.
  • Shop ‘til you drop at several shopping areas in Sedona including:
  • Tlaquepaque, (pronounced Tla-keh-pah-keh), Sedona Arizona's Arts & Crafts Village, an authentically-fashioned traditional Mexican village.
  • Sedona Main Street is a vibrant pedestrian-friendly destination that embraces the beauty of the surrounding red rocks and creates a unique experience for all to enjoy.
  • Hillside Sedona - Sedona's premier shopping and dining destination! You will find some of the most prestigious art galleries in the Southwest, award-winning dining, quality high fashion clothing for both men and women, unique specialty shops, wine tasting from around the world, and distinguishing home decor.
  • Get a bird’s eye view of the Sedona red rocks on a helicopter tour.  Seeing Sedona by air will truly take your breath away. The views are spectacular...beyond compare. Whether by helicopter or airplane, be sure to see the Sedona by air...and let your dreams take flight.

About Sedona: 
Just 90 minutes north of Prescott, Arizona, Sedona has become a day trip and overnight destination for visitors to Northern Arizona who wish to explore the famous red rocks, the scenic Verde River, the 1.8 million-acre Coconino National Forest, or the winding road through Oak Creek Canyon. There are a nearly infinite number of things to do in Sedona! Relax atop shaded boulders that dot the 16-mile gorge of Oak Creek Canyon, take a rugged Jeep tour or helicopter tour deep into Sedona's authentic Indian ruins or scale a red rock monolith that penetrates the crystal blue sky.

On the other hand, some Sedona visitors choose to do very little at all...like sitting back and marveling at the reflection of the sun at dusk that seems to make the Red Rocks appear an even richer and more vibrant hue, as if they glowed from within. There is a strong belief that this place is home to several Sedona vortexes - specific focal points of the earth's energy - and they travel many miles just to feel the renewal of energy in their own life. Whatever the case, Sedona has a way of taking your breath away and reminding us that there aren't many places on earth quite as spectacular as Sedona. In fact, Sedona, Arizona was named "The Most Beautiful Place in America" in USA Weekend's Annual Travel Report.

Whether you come to Sedona to marvel at the red rocks and other Sedona attractions on one of several exciting Jeep tours in Sedona or for a relaxing getaway to one of the world-renowned Sedona spas, you will leave this beautiful rocky fortress revitalized.
