Location


Sedona sits along the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties. The city is about 48 minutes from Flagstaff and a little under 2 hours from Phoenix.

There is more to a location than numbers and distances, however, and location is where Sedona really shines. Named number one in USA Today's Weekend article on the most beautiful places in America, its multi-hued stone formations create a visual setting like no other, changing hourly with the light. Stone formation types include pinnacles, spires, buttes and domes.

Just watch the video near the top of this page to see what we mean. You can also go to visitsedona.com to see more.

Landmarks & Attractions


One of Sedona's main attractions is its land (there's a reason nearly 100 movies have been filmed here). The town is surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest land. As such, there are plenty of trails to hike and bike, as well as off-road vehicle tracks to put your 4x4 to the test.

Other high points include:

  • Native American sacred land.
  • Alleged spiritual vortex energy centers.
  • 40+ art galleries
  • Dozens of spa services.
  • 3 city parks, with combined amenities including: trails, picnic ramadas, athletic fields, playgrounds, dog park, skate park & future bike skills park, splash park, tennis courts, and a museum.

Four Golf Clubs

Helicopter Air Tours

Hot Air Balloon Rides

Ground Tours

Wineries & Wine Tasting

There is so much to do and see here that it would be tedious to list them all here. We'll leave that to Visit Sedona, a great website maintained by the city's chamber of commerce.

History


Sedona Native American rock art.Around 650 A.D., the Sinagua people entered the Verde Valley. Their culture is known for its art such as pottery, basketry and their masonry. They left rock art, pueblos, and cliff dwellings such as Montezuma Castle, Honanki, Palatki and Tuzigoot, especially in the later period of their presence. The Sinagua abandoned the Verde Valley about 1400 A.D. Researchers believe the Sinagua and other clans moved to the Hopi mesas in Arizona and the Zuni and other pueblos in New Mexico.

The Yavapai came from the west when the Sinagua were still there in the Verde Valley around 1300 A.D. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers. Some archaeologists place the Apache arrival in the Verde Valley around 1450 A.D. Many Apache groups were nomadic or seminomadic and traveled over large areas.

The Yavapai and Apache tribes were forcibly removed from the Verde Valley in 1876, to the San Carlos Indian Reservation, 180 miles (290 km) southeast. About 1,500 people were marched, in midwinter, to San Carlos. Several hundred lost their lives. The survivors were interned for 25 years. About 200 Yavapai and Apache people returned to the Verde Valley in 1900 and have since intermingled as a single political entity although culturally distinct residing in the Yavapai-Apache Nation.

The first Anglo settler, John J. Thompson, moved to Oak Creek Canyon in 1876. The early settlers were farmers and ranchers. Oak Creek Canyon was well known for its peach and apple orchards. In 1902, when the Sedona post office was established, there were 55 residents. In the mid-1950s, the first telephone directory listed 155 names. Some parts of the Sedona area were not electrified until the 1960s.

Sedona began to develop as a tourist destination, vacation-home and retirement center in the 1950s. Most of the development seen today was constructed in the 1980s and 1990s. As of 2007, there are no large tracts of undeveloped land remaining.

Sedona played host to more than sixty Hollywood productions from the first years of movies into the 1970s. The small town, which served as a kind of microcosm of Hollywood history, sits about 120 miles north of Phoenix, nestled between thousand-foot-high walls of stone in lushly forested Oak Creek Canyon and the wide open space of the Verde Valley, and it was the diversity of this unspoiled landscape that made it such an ideal location to shoot outdoor scenes. Stretching as far back as 1923, Sedona’s signature red rocks were a fixture in major Hollywood productions—including enduring favorites such as Johnny Guitar, Angel and the Badman, Desert Fury, Blood on the Moon, and 3:10 to Yuma—but typically were identified to audiences as the terrain of Texas, California, Nevada, and even Canada–US border territory.
