Sedona Attractions

Sedona is a picturesque community in Northern Arizona surrounded by some of the planet's most spectacular scenery. Known as the "Red Rock City," Sedona features a year-round tourist season with plenty of available activities - no matter what month you choose to visit.

Local artists frequently put on shows, and many people who are interested in metaphysical matters visit live in Sedona, which gives it a unique New Age flavor.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find no shortage of things to do in Sedona. Because it's located at 4,500 feet, summers aren't quite as warm as in other places in AZ, but the temperatures can still climb into the 90s and above during the middle of summer. To avoid becoming overheated while hiking or biking through the many available trails in the area, choose the early morning or evening hours instead of midday treks. You can get a trail map at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce office as well as information on Sedona activities.

One of the main attractions in Sedona is Cathedral Rock, which is one of the most photographed spots in the entire state of Arizona. A short, steep trail leads to the summit of this landmark. The view from the summit is breathtaking and unique, and it is definitely one of the Sedona excursions you should participate in during your visit. Another must see natural phenomenon near Sedona is Oak Creek Canyon. Although this area is beautiful during any time of the year, Oak Creek Canyon is at its best during the autumn months when the leaves of the deciduous trees are changing color.
