Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
When in Sedona, make a side trip to see Bearizona Wildlife Park in Williams, approximately 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: cruise along Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chapel of the Holy Cross, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the dramatic natural features at Bell Rock.
