The art. The culture. The canyon. And oh, those amazing Red Rocks. There's practically no end in terms of fun filled things to do in Sedona.

Sedona earned its nickname "Red Rock Country" from the surrounding sandstone monoliths: Coffeepot, Cathedral and Thunder. Sunrise and sunsets illuminate the area in rich, fiery hues, making it easy to see why some view the place as a spiritual Mecca. Sedona is located in Arizona's high desert, blessed with four mild seasons plus abundant sunshine and clean air thanks to its 4,500 feet of elevation.
Almost the entire world knows that Sedona is an exceptionally beautiful place. Characterized by massive red-rock formations and Creek Canyon, the area is a four-season playground. Check out this video from Arizona Expeditions on Sedona and Flagstaff.
