Sedona is a very popular town that boasts some incredible views, rock formations and hiking. The red rocks of Sedona are what make it such a marvel; they really are fascinating and beautiful. There are plenty of easy strolls or you can choose a more strenuous hike to places like Cathedral Rock, West Fork of Oak Creek or Devil’s Bridge.
Uptown Sedona has lots of cute little shops and eateries where you can find about any type of souvenir you could want. Heading North, you’ll drive a winding little road alongside Oak Creek with some great hiking and camping along the way. If you drove from Uptown Sedona north on Highway 89A you would come to Flagstaff in about 45 minutes.
If you’re looking for a good meal and a stroll, many people like to cruise around the artsy village of Tlaquepaque. The Spanish-influenced plaza has a wonderful ambiance and lots of little shops and restaurants to choose from. You may even encounter a street performer, fire dancers or a guitar player if you’re lucky.
A favorite among families in Oak Creek Canyon just north of Sedona is Slide Rock State Park. A great little spot where you can bring your swimsuit and slide down natural rock water slides. Bring a picnic and soak up the sun with your toes in the cool water of Oak Creek.
