Things to Do During Your Christmas Trip to Sedona
1. Go for a Holiday Hike
It may be the Christmas season in Sedona, but the mild weather (daily temperatures averaging in the low 60s) means you can get out and explore the natural beauty of our Red Rock paradise. Hiking is one of the best ways to see our area. Some of our favorite spots for a morning hike are Red Rock State Park, the Airport Mesa, and Devil’s Bridge. Of course, there are over 100 trails in the Sedona area, so you’ll never run out of new places to see. Check out some of our favorites on our Sedona hiking blog!
2. Celebrate the Christmas Season With Holiday Festivities
