Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Bearizona Wildlife Park and Slide Rock State Park. Take a break from the city and head to Cathedral Rock and Oak Creek Canyon. Change things up with a short trip to Walnut Canyon National Monument in Flagstaff (about 1h 05 min away). There's still lots to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, stop by The Hike House, cruise along Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179), and take in the dramatic natural features at Bell Rock.
