Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Visit Walnut Canyon National Monument and V-Bar-V Heritage Site for their historical value. Take a break from the city and head to Bearizona Wildlife Park and Bell Rock. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sedona: Montezuma Castle National Monument (in Camp Verde) and Wupatki National Monument (in Flagstaff). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Cathedral Rock, take in breathtaking views at Oak Creek Canyon, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and take a memorable drive along Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179).

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Sedona trip planner .

In December, daytime highs in Sedona are 54°F, while nighttime lows are 38°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
