Sedona, Arizona Vacation Travel

More About Sedona - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
With a natural beauty that attracts tourists and artists alike, Sedona is indeed a Mecca in the Southwestern U.S. Given its location, beware of mid-day heat in the summer months. To make your visit into an inspiring visual feast, plan your trip for the International Film Festival in February - or the En Plein Air event in October, featuring the stunning landscapes of over forty area artists. Beware and check in advance: forest fires have closed some hiking areas.

Where to stay?
Resorts and bed and breakfasts are equally popular as lodging options go in Sedona. If pampering is what your Southwest-seeking, then go with a resort. If a cozy, friendly ambience is more your style, then explore the many bed and breakfast inns. A nice variety of cabins offer seclusion and benefits like creek-side breakfasts and hot tubs. There is also a motel corridor with plenty of options along Highway 89-A. If you are on a budget, try checking into the towns of Clarkdale and Cottonwood, both of which are just 12 miles outside Sedona.

What to do?
Enter the Red Rocks! It does not take an experienced hiker to get near these beauties; often the low-land, flatter hikes often offer the most inspiring views of their lofty forms. Beyond hiking and biking the State Parks, Coconino National Forest and/or Oak Creek Canyon, take in the entire area via a Jeep tour. And if your getaway includes plenty of indulgences, pick up the Sedona SuperPass from the Chamber of Commerce to find a variety of coupons for the many renowned spas, restaurants and stores.
