Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Visiting V-Bar-V Heritage Site and Jerome State Historic Park will get you outdoors. Riordan Mansion State Historic Park and Amitabha Stupa & Peace Park will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Sedona side-trips: Montezuma Well (in Rimrock) and Prescott (Lynx Lake Recreation Area, Whiskey Row, & more). There's much more to do: hike along Doe Mountain Trail, wander the streets of Historic Old Town Cottonwood, look for gifts at Trailhead Tea, and delve into the distant past at Palatki Ruins.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Sedona driving holiday planner .

Denver to Sedona is an approximately 3.5-hour combination of train, flight, and taxi. You can also do a combination of train, flight, taxi, and bus; or drive. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Denver in November, with highs in Sedona at 64°F and lows at 45°F.
