Sedona is a very special place of beauty and enchantment. Their flaming red mountains and unique rock formations brighten the sky.

When you visit Sedona, the experience is unforgettable!   

BELL ROCK

Almost immediately as you drive along the highway entering Sedona the colors suddenly change to different shades of red and the scenery seems to sparkle.

The road into Sedona begins the different shade of red.

With a population of only 10,000 and 3-1/2 million tourists, Sedona surprises visitors because they have many more attractions than most small towns. You will find fine dining as well as budget restaurants, interesting shops, many art galleries, spas, small shopping centers, museums, plenty of souvenirs, and movie theaters. Neon lights are not allowed for businesses only signs. Even McDonalds doesn't have their golden arches. 

Sedona's quaintness is so appealing at their western themed stores and shopping centers. You would not see such an architectural mix as in Sedona.

You can take a tour into the mountains to see ancient American Indian ruins or rent a jeep and try a do-it- yourself trip to explore the forest. 

There is the Out of Africa wild animal park which you must not miss! The truck is open and the animals come right up to you. See wild animals up-close at their Predator Feed and Tiger Splash.

The Trolley Tour stops at the famous spots around the city and one of the most interesting stops is the amazing Chapel in the Mountain built between two large red rock formations in the mountain. Designed by a Frank Lloyd Wright student, the chapel was built in 1956 and rises 200 feet above the ground. You won't have to climb just take the road to the top and walk around inside the chapel.

There is such a mixture of things to do for everyone. Take a Tour of the Universe for star gazing, or one of the wineries, helicopter tours of the city, hiking and mountain biking into the forest, and ballooning for a spectacular view of Sedona. At Slide Rock State Park, the rocks naturally formed a smooth slide into the water.

You will see many rock formations while driving around Sedona: Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Coffee Pot- look for the spout, and many others. It is more fun when you take a tour or have someone point them out and explain the legends.  

There's also the old ghost town of Jerome just a half-hour from Sedona.

Orson Wells, John Wayne, Jayne Russell, Donald O'Connor and many other movie stars found Sedona back in the early days as the perfect location for filming westerns.
