Located in north-central Arizona under the towering southwestern rim of the Colorado Plateau, Sedona is a small, scenic and spiritual city, with vacation rentals scattered throughout.
Straddled by the stunning red rock formations known as Cathedral, Coffeepot, and Thunder Mountain, and the spectacular Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona is a nature and outdoors lover’s paradise. Hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding are popular in the area’s state parks, while canoeing, kayaking, rafting, tubing, and fishing are favourites along the Verde River. Sedona also provides opportunities for bird watching, wildlife viewing, and stargazing.
In addition to its majestic red rocks, Sedona has long attracted tourists because of its reputation as an enclave for artists and new age Americana counterculture. The city and surrounding areas are dotted with art galleries and shops that display and sell the work of local artisans, who specialize in Native American arts and crafts and the art of the American Southwest. The city is also famous for its vortex sites, and as such, is considered to be a sacred place. Sedona hosts a number of annual events, including an Arts Festival, a Jazz Festival, and an International Film Festival.
Sedona offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is easily accessible from Phoenix and its International Airport.+ More
