Sedona, Arizona, is easily one of the best places to go during a summer or winter vacation.

There are plenty of things to do here during your holiday, whether you are into the local favorites, kid-friendly activities, outdoor-centric trips, art and culture spots, or historical monuments.
Maybe you have stayed with us before, or perhaps this is your first time.

Walk into Sedona vacation rentals that are airy and bright, containing all the comforts of home, and feel the tension leave your shoulders and your worries fade away. Inside you will discover kitchens that are the heart of the home—spaces in which meals will be cooked, secrets will be told, and snacks will be shared by the light of the stove in the darkest hours of the night. Dining areas feature tables that dominate the spaces, serving multiple purposes as guests sit here to dine, play games, or make plans about which adventure they should explore first! Living areas furnished with the ultimate in high-quality furnishings also offer state-of-the-art televisions, giving guests the chance to keep up with their favorite television shows or to watch the big game.
Each space is different, but in some properties, you may find game rooms stocked with a variety of full-size game tables, board games, or a game console that comes with a selection of video games. Other Sedona, AZ vacation rentals may offer televisions in every room, deep soaking tubs, or even bookshelves filled with bestsellers you have been dying to read, but just don’t have the time for during your “real life.” Outside there can be fire pits and hot tubs or conversation areas and lounging areas, all surrounded by the natural beauty of the Sedona landscape. If your particular property lies in the shadow of the red rocks, the magic and majesty of these monuments offer a little extra bonus in a getaway that is filled with superlatives!

This is the ideal day trip to go to if you find that you are here o a rainy day in Sedona. This landmark has artisanal shops, designer outlets, and galleries that feature local artists, sculptors, and much more.
Cathedral Rock Trail
Looking to get outside, burn a few calories, get in your 10,000 steps, and see the sights of the surrounding desert? If so, head to the Cathedral Rock Trail! We recommend coming here early in the morning so you can avoid the crowds, soak in the breathtaking views, and get to the top before the midday heat arrives. We recommend picking up some iced coffee from one of the cool and artsy cafes in downtown Sedona before heading off on the hot, 1.4-mile trail.
Red Rock Scenic Byway
The Red Rock Scenic Byway is along Highway 179 that runs from the Village of Oak Creek to Sedona. Along this stretch of road are amazing natural attractions such as hiking and bike trails, pullouts with scenic views and markets along the way. You can see popular attractions like Cathedral Rock, Chapel of the Holy Cross and Bell Rock all from this stretch of highway. The view of these amazing Sedona natural attractions is simply amazing during sunset. The sun streaks hues of purple, red, and orange across the sky and is really a unique sight to see.
Pink Jeep Tours
Jeep tours are one of the most popular things to do in the Southwest and Sedona is no exception. Pink Jeep Tours are one of the biggest companies and offers very unique tours through the natural beauty around Sedona. The tours provide a combination of scenic views and the excitement of off roading in the desert. The drivers are very knowledgeable about the local history and geology of the area and provide a great guide to this amazing area.
Chapel of the Holy Cross
The Chapel of the Holy Cross is an actual chapel that was designed by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a famous pupil of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Built in 1956, this chapel sits on a red rock plateau below a multi-hued sandstone ridge. The Sedona landmark incorporates a 90-foot cross that dominates the structure. The modern appearance features sharp lines that perfectly contrasts the rounded red rocks that lies behind. This is truly one of the most beautiful attractions in all of Sedona.
This scenic chapel in the red rock desert is a landmark for all of those who visit Arizona. We recommend heading here early in the morning via hiking trail to really take in the beauty of the area without the crowds of tourists in the distance. This is the perfect day trip for those who want to bring a take-away lunch picnic and really take in the sights and sounds of the peaceful desert. Make some sandwiches, salads, and smoothies in your high-end accommodation, and off you go!
Slide Rock State Park
Slide Rock State Park is in Oak Creek Canyon and is both a historic and natural attraction. This is one of the most popular attractions in Sedona in the summer due to the natural formation of a waterslide down several small waterfalls.
