Sedona, Arizona, a 2 hour drive north from burgeoning Phoenix and 90 miles south of the Grand Canyon, lies amidst an ancient forest of juniper and pine. It is surrounded by the celebrated sculptured pinnacles and mystical vortexes of Arizona Red Rock Country.
One of America's premier tourism, recreation, arts, and cultural centers, Sedona enjoys a moderate elevation of 4,500 ft., escaping the desert heat of southern Arizona and mountain snows to the north, with either just a short drive away. Four delightfully mild seasons' with average annual daily temperatures of 74 and 46 degrees, and total annual precipitation of only 17 inches makes for an ideal getaway destination year round.
In addition to its unique and startling natural beauty, the vibrant city with a residential population of 16,000 has become nationally recognized as a creative and spiritual center. It attracts artists, writers and visitors from around the world with over 40 art galleries and significant cultural facilities.
World renowned natural wonders of the area and its favorable climate coupled with super-clean air and water have made Sedona a sought after Mecca for visitors. Sightseeing, hiking, championship golf and tennis are almost year round activities. Visitors can take a Jeep ride deep into the exciting backcountry or view red rock monoliths from horseback, biplanes, and hot air balloons. Sedona Red Rock Country has been the setting of many major motion pictures and continues to be a favorite location for all forms of film making.
