Whether you are an avid adventurer, an art lover, or simply looking for a relaxing vacation, Sedona has it all. It has long been named one of the most beautiful places in America, and when you visit, you’ll see why. Towering red rock mountains surround a beautiful artsy town that has something to offer for everyone.
If you are of the outdoorsy variety, you will love what Sedona has to offer. Whether you choose to book a private tour guide or explore yourself, you can hike for days and not see every sight that the area encompasses. Hikes range from easy flat hikes to strenuous summits, and be aware- the dust from the red rocks will stick to you! No need to purchase a souvenir “red dirt” shirt, you will have it all over yourself. If hiking isn’t your thing though, you can go paddling on the Verde River, take a hot-air balloon ride, or take one of the famous Pink Jeep tours.
For art lovers, Sedona can be a true paradise. It is one of the biggest art centers in the desert Southwest, with galleries located all along Gallery Row. You can buy gorgeous artwork to adorn your home, or traditional turquoise and sterling silver jewelry to grace your personal style. There are constantly events being held within the city for art-lovers, including music festival, First Friday art walks, and classes for aspiring artists.
Get in tune with your spiritual side and visit Sedona as an International City of Peace. Take a trip to one of the vortex sites in Sedona, including Bell Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Cathedral Rock. They are considered sacred sites by ancient and modern Native American traditions, as places of concentrated energy. You can also visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, which is a gorgeous structure built into the living rock of the mountain.
