Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Step out of the city life by going to Bearizona Wildlife Park and Oak Creek Canyon. Step out of Sedona with an excursion to Meteor Crater Natural Landmark in Winslow--about 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Cathedral Rock, learn about winemaking at Javelina Leap Vineyard, Winery & Bistro, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and take a memorable drive along Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179).
