Despite its relatively small size, Sedona overflows with tourist appeal.
Explore hidden gems such as Historic Old Town Cottonwood and Jerome State Historic Park. Step out of the city life by going to V-Bar-V Heritage Site and Doe Mountain Trail. Go for a jaunt from Sedona to Clarkdale to see Tuzigoot National Monument about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Palatki Ruins, look for gifts at Trailhead Tea, explore the stunning scenery at Boynton Canyon Trail, and learn about winemaking at Page Springs Cellars.
