Would highly recommend the drive up 89A and Oak Creek Canyon. The terrain changes dramatically from Sedona and the highway is something to drive through.

Loved this area. Nice hotels, shops restaurants and just to drive around. About 10 minutes from the 'hooping' part of Sedona's shopping. Seems like a newer area..

We hiked for a few hours here, was very beautiful. The creek crossings were challenging due to the ice. We saw many getting wet feet, so be prepared.

Can't miss when in Sedona. Winding drive up Rt 89A with literally 100s of spectacular views. Many places to pull over and view. Make sure to switch drivers so everyone gets the benefits.

Another Arizona finest. Always love the drive there and back. The Native Americans who set up are so helpful in explaining designs, etc.

This drive is absolutely beautiful! The road is a little dangerous so the driver really can't take in all the views, but there are plenty of places to pull over and pause to take it all in. The overlook at the end is a must...More

Riparian oasis in the high desert, would be more attractive in the summer, esp. at location where you could swim.

This would be a lovely drive, but few places would be wheelchair accessible. I would recommend stopping at the Junipine Lodge for lunch. The food is wonderful and I think I recall that they have a wheelchair ramp.
