Sedona is the place to reinvigorate your soul – even if you’re not sure you have one. We jest, but this golden-hued city and its shimmering red rocks are undeniably spiritual. Vortexes and crystal shops lure New Age enthusiasts while crimson buttes and steep canyons inspire artists and adventurers.
For jeep tours and trolley rides, head to Uptown, Sedona’s bustling city center. Just south, galleries, shops and restaurants cluster in the stylish Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. Lofty views await at the whisper-thin Chapel of the Holy Cross, perched beside a cauldron of red rocks. Want more stunning views? Follow Red Rock Loop Road past tranquil Red Rock State Park and camera-ready Cathedral Rock.
The adventurous can pedal a bike in the glow of mighty Bell Rock, swoop down a watery rock slide at Slide Rock State Park or hike to a vortex in Boynton Canyon. When you’re done with boulders, there’s one more on-the-rocks activity to try – savoring an end-of-day margarita at Elote Café, perhaps the most transcendent experience of all.
