Sedona's beauty is spectacular. Its crimson layered rocks whisper for attention with gentleness and offering guidance. Their soft voices echo with each careful step you take on the porous red rock surfaces, reminding you to be gentle as eons of knowledge & wisdom whisper in your ear.
Native Cultures & Tribes color each facet of nature with symbolic names. Standing People (trees); Creature-beings (animals, insects), Plant People, and finally the Stone People (rocks). Natives believe Stone People provide all the history & knowledge of this earthen world we live in, and our own personal records.
Stone People assist you in remembering where you came from and where you're going. They speak to New Understandings - how to focus your intent, dispel confusion, change habits, get grounded, etc.
Sedona's Red Rocks lend themselves to these endeavors of new understandings, spiritual enlightenment, new knowledge. Natives traveled here over 4500 (some say 6500) years ago to listen & tap into these Red Rock Stone People's wisdom.
For those wishing to escape the entanglements and chaotic cadence of city life, you'll find welcomed relief here. All the creature comforts of today's world with a touch of 1950's Mayberry RFD. Enjoy free wi-fi at almost every coffee shop &/or cafe. If more than 10 cars line up at a stop-light intersection, it's called traffic.
Shop early! Most parts of town close by 9p. Some shops close by 6p.
Take a safe (crime-free) stroll under the blanket of this dark sky town, millions of bright stars twinkling above you. Just don't forget a flashlight. Sedona Police & Yavapai County Sheriffs patrol everywhere & often. On bicycles, afoot & in cars.
Red Rock energies capture your mind? Forget to lock your car doors? In the past, you’d be safe. Nowadays, pay attention and lock your car doors. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water.
Bring your 4-legged canine! This is a dog-friendly town. Pull up to a drive-thru and your pooch gets a treat. (Wendy's, a local coffee shop, your national bank chain, even McDonald's on occasion). Stopping for a coffee with dog in tow? Leash your pet & bring her/him along.
Best place to hear phrase "take a hike!" We have over 200 trails to choose from. Our temperate climate allows you to enjoy them at least 10 months/year. Bring 2 bottles of water for every hour you spend out there. Don't forget sunscreen and hat. No matter what time of year, the Arizona sun is bright.
Frequent a restaurant or bar twice and they'll recognize you forever. We're a friendly town with a small population (10K). We love seeing people enjoy themselves. That's the true Spirit of Sedona.
Honk your horn & you'll receive either happy waves or dirty looks. We don't honk unless we see someone we know. Honk at a red light to move a car forward, don't expect applause. We move slow here. That goes double with our roundabouts.
Roundabout instructions: Yield to cars inside roundabouts. If no car inside roundabout, drive through it. Don't stop inside roundabout. You'll block traffic flow.
Red Rocks too hot for you? We have at least 4 natural swimming holes, several hotel/motel pools and one Sedona community pool.
Sedona locals provide a good cross-section of life. Yuppies, Hippies, New Agers, Generation X's, Y's, etc., Business Leaders, Retirees, Entertainers, Musicians, Writers, Artists, Inventors, Business owners - spanning the globe.
