Located in Arizona’s high desert under the towering southwestern rim of the vast Colorado Plateau, the city of Sedona has four mild seasons marked by abundant sunshine and clean air. Typically, the annual average high and low temperatures are 74.7 and 45.7 degrees, respectively. Strategically situated at the mouth of Oak Creek Canyon, and only 25 miles from Verde Canyon Railroad, it is an exceptional place. Characterized by massive red-rock formations, as well as the contrasting riparian area of Verde Canyon, it is the perfect complement to your Verde Canyon Railroad adventure.
