If Sedona has a kindred spirit it’s the Grand Canyon.

The two geological marvels are both “bucket list” destinations for people all over the world. Millions of visitors come for scenery that’s dazzlingly unique. See a photo of either the Grand Canyon or Sedona and you can’t mistake it for anywhere else. Yet photos don’t begin to do these Arizona icons justice. They must be experienced in person.The fin

It’s hard to imagine traveling to the Southwest and not visiting Grand Canyon or Sedona. So why not do both? We believe when you have one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World in your backyard, take advantage of it. By making Sedona your base camp for a Grand Canyon expedition, you’ll enjoy a much wider array of creature comforts. In Sedona you’ll find more places to stay and eat, not to mention spas, shops, galleries and more.

Sedona sits approximately 100 miles south of the Grand Canyon and it’s a spectacular journey. If you prefer to let someone else do the driving so you can relax and take in the sights, several companies launch guided Grand Canyon tours from Sedona.

At Grand Canyon National Park designated overlooks provide visitors with aw-inspiring views. Walk along the rim in Grand Canyon Village. Snap a photo of mule riders moseying towards the river and peer into the abyss to hear what secrets are echoed there.

Then it’s time to come back home to Sedona, where all the incredible sights are just outside your door. Blessed with a beauty that’s epic yet intimate, grandiose yet personal, people seem to make a very special connection to Sedona. No overlooks or mule rides are required.
