Welcome to Sedona, Arizona, the extremely vibrant desert town located near Flagstaff.
Sedona is known for its mild climate and eclectic arts community, as well as for being the "most beautiful place on earth" (voted for by USA Weekends). This gorgeous city is surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls, and pine forests that all belong to the over 1.8 million acres of national forest land. On the outskirts of town, you will find numerous trailheads that give access to Red Rock State Park, which in turn gives access to seemingly endless outdoor recreation opportunities. Enjoy bird-watching, hiking, picnicking, biking, jeep tracking, and forest walking while here.
Not only is the heart-leaping scenery of this geological wonderland of multi-hued stone formations exciting and worth the trip itself, but this city sitting on the intersection of wilderness and luxury also cradles an array of popular resorts and galleries. Enjoy the Uptown area, dense with New Age niche shops, spas, and art galleries. As a matter of fact, there are actually over 40 galleries and 15 spas and resorts total! Also, enjoy the memorizing setting that changes hourly with the sun while sitting at any of the boutique wineries or excellent eateries throughout the city. Try Juniper Bar and Grille, the Barking Frog, 89Agave, the Secret Garden or Cress on Oak Creek for some of the best food you'll find in Arizona.
Overall, your group is going to really love what local Native Americans call a place of healing and spiritual renewal, photographers call the most gorgeous place in the Southwest, and tourists call an ultimately great vacation time here in Sedona!
