Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Do some cultural sightseeing at V-Bar-V Heritage Site and Jerome State Historic Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lynx Lake Recreation Area and Doe Mountain Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sedona: Jerome (Gold King Mine Museum and Ghost Town & Douglas Mansion) and Montezuma Well (in Rimrock). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Historic Old Town Cottonwood, hike along Fay Canyon Trail, explore the ancient world of Palatki Ruins, and learn about winemaking at Javelina Leap Vineyard, Winery & Bistro.
