    Driving through the town can take a long time for the one+ mile form north to intersection of Hwy 89A and 179 going south. It is a bottleneck, but does have a turnabout to help a bit. Then if you go further west on Hwy 89A, there many lights, people pulling off the road, and pulling on to it. Speed limit is 40MPH, so be careful. It takes about 15 minutes to go 5 miles west on Hwy 89A

    Driving to Sedona

    We drove to Sedona after our two day visit to the Grand Cayon. I'm a big fan of the "road trip" so I thouroughly enjoyed seeing the sights from the Canyon all the way to Sedona. It was a beautiful change in scenery along the way from desert and rocks to huge green trees and bright red rocks. It was quite amazing.

    The "Y"

    When you are here driving around, you will come very familiar with the term the "Y". All the locals refer to it and I can perfectly understand why they do. It is the major intersection in this town. It is where Hwy 89A and Hwy 179 intersect.

    These are a neat service Sedona provides its tourists and locals. This service is free and runs from Clear Creek Trading Company on Hwy 89A all along and down to Hillside Shops and Galleries on Hwy 179 and then back. They stop at all the public parking areas and many shopping locations along the way.

    The most beautiful parts of Oak Creek Canyon can only be reached by foot. It is a pleasant walk from a parkingplace near the road from Sedona to Flagstaff. Through Sedona country one can take nice scenic drives and see the various Red Rock formations.

    I would suggest Sedona as a side trip, so you're most likely already in Arizona for something else, like the Grand Canyon! ;) Anyway, if you're coming from Flagstaff, definitely take state road 89A through Oak Creek Canyon. If coming from Phoenix, the quickest root would probably just to get off the interstate and then drive slightly north on 89A. Although, I would still reccommend making your way through Oak Creek!
    Not a very big town.. park your car and then walk around the little shopping area.

    Sedona is about 90 miles north of Phoenix, or just about 30 miles south of Flagstaff. It's west of I17, which runs between Flagstaff and Phoenix. The drive is nice, and the speed limits go up to 75 mph.
    It's best to have a car, since there is so much to see and you sometimes want to go just a little farther to get that good photo angle.

    From Phoenix (Sky Harbor Airport), get on Interstate 10 going north toward Flagstaff. Exit at Hiway 179, Sedona, Exit #298, head north about 15 miles. Rental cars or Sedona Shuttle Bus available. From Flagstaff (Interstate 40), get on Interstate 17, southbound (toward Phoenix), take first exit south of I-40, US Highway 89A south toward Sedona.
    Personal or rental automobiles are the best way to get around Sedona. There is also a tourist Trolley that can be used as a bus, taxi service.

    We drove to Sedona from Williams. As we drove along Highway 89A we pulled over to take this photo from the scenic viewpoint at the top of Oak Creek Canyon.
