Sedona straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the Verde Valley region of Arizona.
Sedona’s main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Sedona was named after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly, the city’s first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness. Her mother, Amanda Miller, claimed to have made the name up because “it sounded pretty”.
Known for rock formations, golf, amazing scenery, the seasons of Oak Creek, and even snow, it’s no wonder Sedona, Arizona is considered one of the most beautiful places on earth!
