Southwestern romance in Sedona
Several Arizona tours will pass through the delightful town of Sedona, whose breathtaking red rock formations have made it one of the top wedding destinations in the world. Adventurous travelers can create their own romantic getaway with a longer stop in this lazy southwestern town.
Sedona’s outdoor activities provide access to some of the best sites of the region. Guests can hike the red rock hills exploring hidden canyons, take a tranquil biking trip along the Red Rock Scenic Byway or ride horseback along the dusty flatlands at sunset.
A number of desert wineries and southwestern artists make their home here, where inhabitants exude a deep sense of passion for their craft that is hard to escape. Forty galleries representing hundreds of local artists commit to arts of all types. From traditional Native American to cutting-edge realism, Sedona’s reputation as an art hot-spot in the Southwest now rivals Santa Fe in its affluence.
Guests who want to take home some of Sedona’s richness can stop by the Sedona Arts Center, where dozens of local artists’ works can be purchased. Local products like cactus jellies and custom Western boots are also available in town, and provide more regional flair that can be brought back home.
