Sedona is located in the high Arizona desert at the mouth of Oak Creek Canyon, and is best known for the world-famous red rock formations that tower over the city and provide stunning views unmatched anywhere on earth. However, for all their breathtaking beauty from the ground, the red rocks are even more spectacular when viewed from the air, and indeed many locations accessible by helicopter in a matter of minutes would be impossible to reach without backpacking into the canyons for several days–if they’re even accessible on foot at all!
The second most frequently visited place in the state of Arizona, Sedona’s visitor count is topped only by the Grand Canyon’s. Often cited in news articles and travel magazines as one of the most beautiful towns in America, there is no mistake that Sedona is one of a kind, a place like none other, and visitors come by the thousands every day to see for themselves. Some visit in search of a chance to get in touch with nature, eager to take in the natural beauty of the iron-rich red rocks; some come for the metaphysical wonders in the the area, searching for vortexes and spiritual experiences; others want to partake in the fine dining and fantastic shopping available throughout the city. All of this is available, and offered up in a naturally beautiful setting perfect for relaxation.
