Visiting
Sedona

Can one vacation truly have something for everyone? Yup! Absolutely! Sedona, Arizona not only has the "Wow!" factor, but is also a place where "boredom" is not part of the vocabulary.

Learn about Native American Culture

In Sedona, you can visit the Ringing Rocks Foundation and become acquainted with native cultures around the world. Not too far out of town are Palatki, Honaki and V Bar V Ranch with their amazing Native American Indian ruins, pictographs and petroglyphs. At nearby Tuzigoot and Montezuma Castle you can study the remains of ancient pueblos. Drive north of Flagstaff to the Wupatki National Monument where less than 800 years ago, the Wupatki Pueblo flourished as the largest pueblo around.

Weather

Every season has its special enchantment in Sedona. Spring is high season, with inviting temperatures in the mid-60s to low 80s. It's the perfect temperature to do most anything. Summer brings in warm, but pleasant, daytime temperatures from 90 to 100 degrees, wonderful for swimming and splashing around in the creeks. Autumn daytime temperatures are in the lower 60's to mid-70's with crisp evenings turning leaves colors that enhance the beautiful red backdrop even more.

Winter is a bit chilly, in the mid 50s to 60s, and finds the red rocks of Sedona dusted in white snow. You'll need to toss on a jacket, but it's a great time of year with fewer crowds and still lots to do.

How to best see the sights of Sedona

There are oh, so many sights to see, both in the center of town and all around! World-class art galleries, a variety of fun shops, and vortexes are as synonymous with Sedona as are its beautiful vistas. You may even see the likes of javelina, mule deer, beavers, raccoons, great blue heron, and black hawks if you venture beyond the center of town.

Great article! Sedona, Arizona is beautiful and it's only about 2 to 2 1/2 hours from Phoenix (the drive isn't that bad). There's a lot to do in Sedona from taking a Pink Jeep Tour to visiting parks such as Slide Rock Park. Watch out for falling rocks, especially when it rains. Bring lots of sunscreen, although Sedona's cooler than the Phoenix area. If you're into mystics and psychics, you'll find plenty of them in Sedona along with spectacular restaurants such as Javelina Cantina on Highway 179 at the Hillside Shopping Center. Happy travels to the Grand Canyon State!

I've been to Sedona, but it was only for about a hour or 2. In the evening, OMGosh, it is so beautiful and romantic, and how I long to go back and visit for some time! It is still in my mind, and I have to go back!!

What a great travel article! The photos were awesome, and the writer really knows the territory. Her tour guide through the beautiful red rock country of Sedona was enlightening. I want to visit soon!
