How to Spend 1 Day in Sedona

How to Spend 1 Day in Sedona

With its easy access to outdoor activities in the surrounding red rocks and canyons, Sedona is a great place for nature enthusiasts to spend a day. Whether you wander the town itself to check out its popular art scene, explore nature, or do a little bit of both, here are some top ways to enjoy 24 hours in Sedona.

 

Morning: Get an Overview

Start the day on a high note by looking down on the red rock landscape of Sedona on a helicopter tour. You’ll get an aerial perspective of mountains, rock formations, and other natural features before, perhaps, checking them out in more detail later in the day. Alternatively, stay on the ground and get acquainted with scenic Sedona on a short tour that introduces you to the area’s geology and history at attractions such as Chapel of the Holy Cross or Oak Creek Canyon. If you’re interested in capturing beautiful photos, book an early morning photography tour.

 

Afternoon: Explore the Red Rocks

There are several 2- to 4-hour tours from Sedona that take you into the rugged countryside for a guided exploration. Depending on your interests, opt for an excursion that includes Native American sites and ancient rock art or one that focuses on the area’s mysterious vortexes. Travel by jeep along the Broken Arrow Trail; visit natural formations like Cathedral Rock and Airport Mesa; or follow in the footsteps of cowboys by exploring Dry Creek Basin and surrounding canyons. Alternatively, stay in town and check out Sedona's galleries and bohemian vibe. 

 

Night: See a Show

Head to nearby Blazin’ M Ranch in Cottonwood for a barbecue dinner and Western-themed entertainment including roping and live music. If you’d rather see a natural show, take an evening safari for the chance to see native wildlife (elk,  foxes, etc.) and enjoy the sunset. Or perhaps discover the eerie side of the area on a ghost tour of Jerome, an old mining town southwest of Sedona.
