Sedona was named

“The Most Beautiful Place in America”

USA Today’s Weekend Travel Report

In 1902, Sedona was officially established by Theodore Schnebly, who named the town after his wife. For most of the twentieth century, Sedona remained a small farming settlement, unmarked on most maps; however, in the middle part of the 20th century, Sedona’s dramatic red rock formations were featured as backdrops for a string of western films and Sedona became famous.

Today, approximately 15,000 people call Sedona home and an estimated 3.5 million people from around the world flock here every year to enjoy Sedona’s inspiring landscape, mild year-round climate, and variety of recreational activities. From browsing the many fine art galleries, to swimming in refreshing Oak Creek, to hiking the scenic trails through the National Forest, Sedona offers something for everyone. Although there are many things to do in Sedona, make sure you leave time for reflection as many people find visiting Sedona a powerfully self-changing experience. Truly a world-class vacation destination, Sedona never fails to amaze even the most seasoned traveler.

The symbol of Sedona’s beauty is Red Rock Crossing, where spring-fed Oak Creek flows at the base of majestic Cathedral Rock. Red Rock Crossing (shown above) is one of the most photographed spots in Arizona and is just a short stroll from Sedona Suite.
