Sedona's "Red Rocks"


Sedona is located about midway between the Grand Canyon and Phoenix. Its scenic beauty will make you forget about any other destination -- at least for a while.

Sedona is situated in what is called "Red Rock Country," and it doesn't take a geologist to explain that label. For miles around, magnificent rock formations jut from the landscape. This high desert plateau also features Oak Creek Canyon. Tourist pass through not just because of the local scenery, but also because the area is close to a major interstate junction in Flagstaff (26 miles north of Sedona) and a neighbor of the Grand Canyon (the south rim entrance is 110 miles north). There are art galleries, tour operations, shopping centers and restaurants to fit every budget. But the greatest attraction here is found in nature. Take a look at what Sedona has to offer and how you can afford a visit to this beautiful area. Click "next" and find out more about a scenic drive that ranks among the best in America.
