Sedona, Arizona at a Glance: A Desert Paradise

Sedona’s natural year-round beauty is conducive to many types of outdoor activities. It’s easy to spend several weeks in Sedona exploring hidden canyons and enjoying red rock trails or visiting the area’s sacred sites.

Sedona is famous for its natural beauty, but there are plenty of other things to see and do. Sedona attractions range from area museums, state parks and national monuments to local wineries and world-class art galleries.


  • A visit to the Sedona Heritage Museum is an excellent way to begin a group tour in Sedona, where dramatic views of towering red rock formations are abundant.
