Known as Red Rock Country, Sedona rests between canyons, mountains and national forest. While hiking the nature trails is a must, active visitors can choose from horseback riding, golf, tennis, rock climbing, fishing, skiing, rafting or biking in the breath-taking natural setting.

This romantic small town is renowned for its luxury resorts, spas, and shopping. Stay in one of a hundred hotels, cabins, campsites or bed and breakfasts, relax in one of the top destination spas in the world, and shop locally for antiques, food or art. Visitors will also indulge in highly acclaimed dining and local wine from the Verde Valley, where tours and tastings nicely compliment a trip.

Choose from a wide variety of tours and attractions including local parks, sanctuaries, and museums via jeeps, ATVs, hummers, bikes or Segways. Beyond ground tours, take in the aerial view from a hot air balloon, helicopter or airplane. From any angle, don’t miss the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Cathedral Rock and Crescent Moon Ranch, some of enchanting and magical elements of the landscape.

With its picture-perfect backdrop as muse, Sedona hosts over a dozen art galleries and a myriad of art events. From painting and sculpture to glasswork and jewelry, art enthusiasts can fill a day shopping and viewing. The Sedona Arts Festival showcases nationally recognized artists in every field each year in August, and the town hosts seasonal craft shows. Find what else there is to discover in Sedona’s reviews.

Hiking and biking in the red rocks followed by a spa treatment, a short nap, and a fine dining experience will get you through day one, but spend the night at any number of comfortable, friendly inns, rise rested and peaceful, grab a cheap breakfast, then check out the shops and art galleries where many of the great artists of our time proudly exhibit their works. There is no place like Sedona - not even close. Check it out at here.

A common thread among the people who are lucky enough to call this beautiful mecca home is that they fell in love with this place from the minute they set eyes on it. Sedona has a way of calling to your spirit and once you hear the call, it is hard to ignore. Welcome to the land of incredible scenery, small town community and the very best in outdoor recreation.

Beautiful, of course. But also surprisingly cosmopolitan for a small town surrounded by National Forest. Many artists, musicians and other creative people from all over the world either visit or make Sedona their home. And many of the retirees bring world-class experience and perspective to the city.
Wherever they are from, Sedonans share a love of beauty that makes the community, as well as the landscape, a special place.
