Plan Your 4th of July in Sedona With These Activities
Verde Canyon Railroad Firecracker Express
The Verde Canyon Railroad celebrates the 4th of July in Sedona with their annual Firecracker Express. Start the day’s festivities at the railroad depot with a barbecue under the shaded depot patio. The holiday menu features burgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad, cupcakes, and ice-cold lemonade. A live bald eagle will be onsite at the depot, and you will be able to get an up-close and personal look at this majestic symbol of America. The train will then depart at 1:00 p.m. and take you on a tour of the beautiful scenery and landscapes around Sedona.
Go for a Hike
There’s no better way to celebrate the feeling of freedom on Independence Day than hiking through the vast and unbridled nature around Sedona. The beautiful red rock formations are home to tons of hiking trails weaving through the unique landscapes around the outskirts of town. Places like Red Rock State Park, the Airport Mesa, and Devil’s Bridge are some of the most popular hikes in the area, but with over 100 trails around Sedona, you’ll never run out of new places to see. Swimming at Slide Rock State Park is another fantastic way to spend a hot summer day.
