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.
- Yes it's beautiful. It's also bumper-to-bumper with traffic, crowded with upscale strip mall stores, galleries, and shops, congested, and very, very expensive. Not as beautiful as Southern Utah or other areas we've been in our years of full-timing, and not that great a hiking experience compared many other places out West. We've seen it once, spent most of the day fighting traffic and crowds, and won't be back.

- It Is one of the most beautiful places that is going through the growing pains of growth. Oak creek which runs through it used to be a memorable place where I wore out many pair of blue jean cutoffs at Slide Rock. Recently when I went back, Oak Creek Cyn had a large amount of trash that careless and uncaring people "dumped and left behind" in a wonderful place. Shame on you for defacing nature in such a beautiful place. I love the way the red walls of the canyons change color as the sun passes over. Sedona is a spiritual experience that no one should miss!

- Way too crowded for what's available. Overpriced. Stay in Flagstaff or Cottonwood and still close enough to get the best hiking, biking, sightseeing. You can still shop on Sedona (not a great idea anyway) and eat at expensive restaurants.
