Cottonwood

4.3

Heart of the Verde Valley

Cottonwood serves as a base for exploring the Verde Valley. The red rocks of Sedona surround the town, which lies between 2,438 m (8,000 ft) Mingus Mountain to the west and the 1,000 m (3,300 ft) Mogollon Rim to the north and east. The town of over 10,000 provides an alternative to busier Sedona for those sightseeing in the Verde Valley. The valley itself is home to state parks, historical sites, and numerous wineries and tasting rooms. The town features a few art galleries and antique shops, and a couple of golf courses lie in its immediate surroundings. Cottonwood is in Arizona (AZ).
