How to Spend 2 Days in Sedona
With 48 hours in Sedona, you can immerse yourself in the history and natural beauty of central Arizona. From red rocks and barbecue to vortexes and wine, here are a few ways to make the most of your time in this scenic town.
Day 1: See the main sights
**Morning:**Get acquainted with Sedona on a short tour that introduces you to the area’s top attractions, such as Chapel of the Holy Cross and Oak Creek Canyon. Alternatively, take advantage of the early morning light on a photography tour, and get some tips on capturing the scenery.
**Afternoon:**Head into the rugged countryside to discover the natural landmarks for which Sedona is known. Join a tour that includes Native American sites and ancient rock art; travel by Jeep along the Broken Arrow Trail; visit Cathedral Rock; or follow in the footsteps of cowboys through Dry Creek Basin.
**Night:**Visit Blazin’ M Ranch in Cottonwood for a barbecue dinner and Western-themed entertainment, including roping and live music. Or for something less wholesome, explore the eerie side of the area on a ghost tour in Jerome, an old mining town just past Cottonwood.
Day 2: Enjoy some alternatives
**Morning:**Treat yourself to a helicopter tour above the Sedona high desert, and savor sweeping views of the mountains and red sandstone formations.
**Afternoon:**Experience another side of the region on a wine-tasting Jeep tour. If you prefer to stay in town, hop on a Segway and check out the sights on Jordan Road, stopping by the Sedona Heritage Museum along the way.
**Night:**Embark on an evening safari for the chance to see native wildlife, such as elk and foxes. For something a little more mystical, opt for a sunset vortex tour to learn about this unusual element of Sedona.
