With tons of activities set among stunning red rocks, Sedona isn’t just for New Agers. Explore the outdoors by hitting up the city’s waterpark, fishing for trout in its bubbling streams, and hiking an array of gentle, family-friendly trails that wind through and over sandstone formations. The best part: These adventure-minded activities are all friendly on the wallet, too.

Slide Rock State Park

Picnic and swim in scenic Oak Creek Canyon at Slide Rock State Park. Gun down a thrilling, all-natural 50-foot-long waterslide carved into the Oak Creek Canyon riverbed.

Rainbow Trout Farm

Spend the afternoon fishing before grilling your catch at the on-site picnic area.

Sedona Airport Restaurant

The window seats offer primo views of private jets flying up and down the runway. Stop by and fuel up with a Red Rock Omelet (avocado, tomato, bacon, jack cheese) in the morning.

Forest Houses Resort

Fifteen unique A-frame bungalows, some with rock fireplaces and large stone patios, are spread across 20 creekside acres in the Oak Creek Canyon.
