Sedona's unworldly landscape on your doorstep

The desert town of Sedona in Arizona is interesting enough, but it's the surrounding landscape of deep canyons, rocky outcrops and millions of acres of pine forest that are the biggest draw. With scenery like that, you'd be forgiven for thinking it suffered from a stiflingly hot year-round climate, but the mild winter and gorgeous shoulder seasons couldn't be better for outdoor adventures. When you stay in a Sedona vacation rental, you can decide how you want to explore. Whether it's by foot, horseback or hot air balloon, you can't help but ooh and aah at the unworldly scenery that has earned it the nickname "Red Rocks Country".

Experience Sedona by foot, horseback or air

As tempting as it may be to just kick back at your Sedona vacation rental and look out over the epic landscape in comfort, nothing beats getting out there and experiencing it first-hand. You can take your pick of how you discover the Red Rocks Country. Exploring the canyons and desert peaks on board an open-air jeep is perhaps the most comfortable, while hopping on a hot air balloon flight lets you take it all in from above. Hiking is without a doubt the most popular outdoor activity and takes little more than a good map and a sturdy pair of boots.

Find out why Sedona inspires artists

When you see the dramatic landscape in Sedona, you'll realize why it's inspired so many artists over the years. The perfect way to complement the scenery is to stop by one of the local galleries to browse the works and chat with the artists. You could even pack up a paint box and easel and have a go yourself, or join one of the workshops. While you're exploring, try to make some time to visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a breathtaking landmark built in the mid-50s. The 1,000 or so petroglyphs which date back centuries are also well worth a look.

Sedona 's all about the shoulder seasons

Unlike much of the US, Sedona's high season doesn't correspond to its sizzling summer. Most people, particularly hikers, drop into Sedona vacation rentals during spring, when the skies are bright, the temperature is warm without being scorching and the landscape of wildflowers bursts into a color. While fall isn't quite as pretty, the climate is just as good. These 2 seasons do come with a higher price tag. If you want to save a few dollars, you should consider swinging by in winter. It might be a little chilly, but the landscape is just as dramatic.

Watch the iconic bald eagle in Sedona

With masses of public park, Sedona is the perfect place to catch a glimpse of some of the 900 species of wildlife that inhabit Arizona. There's a whole host of species, both big and small, to spot. If you hop aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad between December and March, grab a spot in one of the open top carriages, where you'll likely spot iconic eagles which, astonishingly, have synchronized their flight pattern with the train timetable. If you're truly passionate, you can head out at night to hear the call of Sedona's nocturnal wildlife.
