Sedona, population 11,220, is located 120 miles north of Phoenix and 30 miles south of Flagstaff in Arizona's central mountains. Sedona is one of Arizona's most popular destinations straddling the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region.
One of Sedona's main attractions is its stunning array of red sandstone formations, the Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red hues when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop for everything from spiritual pursuits to the myriad of incredible hiking and mountain biking trails. Just north of town is Oak Creek Canyon with its own dramatic beauty, swimming holes, natural rock slides and camping in its cool forest.
The stunning natural beauty of the area combined with its relaxed atmosphere has drawn many artists to the area. Art galleries are numerous, offering many varieties of art in all price ranges.
