#1 Attraction: Sedona is a new experience for a traveler every time they visit. The number one attraction to Sedona is it’s red rock mountains. I know you have heard it before, but the red rocks of Sedona do have a life of their own. If you will take the trouble to get out of your car, put on some walking shoes, grab your water bottle and take off on a trail into a red rock canyon or walk up a trail into a high red rock overlook away from people, away from cars, away from what we all call normal and take open your eyes wide – you will understand what Sedona is all about. Stop at the National Forest Service information center as you enter Sedona for information.
