Renowned for its unique sandstone formations, Sedona is a spiritual hub that has attracted travelers from all over the world in search of outdoor recreation, artistic inspiration, and self-discovery. A wellness hub, Sedona is home to dozens of spas, many of which feature Native American-inspired treatments that incorporate red rock clay and local fauna.
Although the city encompasses just 19 square miles, there’s plenty to do. Shop downtown, relax and rejuvenate at a spa or yoga studio, and discover the city’s vibrant arts community. Numerous trailheads on the outskirts of town lead to ancient cliff dwellings and heritage sites, caves and sinkholes, and never-ending views.
This is Sedona’s pièce de résistance. Stop by the education center to learn about the canyon and the park’s animal inhabitants before traversing the hiking, biking, and equestrian trails that wind through the famed red rocks.
Built in the 1950s atop red rock buttes, this midcentury modern chapel is a surreal architectural landmark. It’s a perfect vantage point to take in stunning vistas of the surrounding Mystic Hills and the city below.
Beat the summer heat with a dip in the cool waters of the four swimming holes at Oak Creek. Feeling brave? Try cliff diving off Grasshopper Point, which drops 25 feet into one of the creek’s deepest points.
