Sights to Behold
Sedona is full of magical secrets just waiting to be explored, from age-old rock temples and vortexes, to modern science exhibitions and national monuments.
A vortex is a place where the Earth’s energy is enhanced. The four main Vortex sites are said to facilitate prayer, meditation and mind/body healing, so be sure to visit: Airport Vortex, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock and Boynton Canyon.
A short drive away from the resort lies a number of National Monuments, including Wupatki, Tuzigoot, Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, and Montezuma Castle. Ask our Concierge for directions and recommendations.
