When arriving in the small Central Arizona town, you’ll be surrounded by sky-high towers of red rock. Sedona offers breathtaking scenes not viewed anywhere else in the world.

The brilliant red sandstone formations have been shaped by Mother Nature over hundreds of millions of years. When you’re there at sunrise and sunset, your camera can capture some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. If you have a selfie stick, join together to create classic family photos and video.

For an outstanding tour, sign up for a Jeep ride through the red rock areas The hardy little cars make their way through the rugged scenery to make the views even more thrilling. If you’re staying overnight or spend enough daylight hours, visit Sedona’s Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, a colorful group of souvenir shops and eateries.

Sedona is about a two-hour drive north from Phoenix via I-17. Continuing north, it’s another hour to Flagstaff, and then another hour to the Grand Canyon National Park entrance.
