This is for Kim. She looked so forward to going here. Then when she went down the rocks she yelled ouch all the way down. It was so slippery she couldn't get out and when Sharon pulled her out she landed on Sharons big toe and it has never been the same. Must look for the video it is a riot. If you're in Sedona, you MUST stop at Slide Rock State Park.

Things To Do Near Sedona with Kids

Just 120 miles north of Phoenix there’s a valley that’s rich in history and wonder where the landscape is as memorable as the the locals are friendly. The uniqueness of Sedona and the Verde Valley makes it the perfect place for anybody, regardless their age, to truly form lasting memories. Depending on your situation that may mean you have kids you’ll be bringing in tow and if that’s the case, “Welcome Aboard and Welcome to Sedona”!

Arizona Weekend Trip with the Kids

Along with being a convenient getaway for Phoenix natives, we’re also a great side trip for folks visiting The Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, or Flagstaff. We’re a stopover that’s a destination itself thanks to the hundreds of amazing things there are to do around here. The honest truth is that there are simply too many things for your kids to enjoy when they come, so to help you plan out your trip, below is a starter list.

Visit Camp Verde

Get the lay of the land here in the Verde Valley at the Camp Verde Chamber of Commerce first so you can get your trip planned best and make sure the kiddies don’t miss anything. For instance, check out a World Class wildlife park, Out of Africa, where you can see the incredible Tiger Splash Show or even zip line over a garden of predators for the best views in the park. Entertain your family with a fun Wild West Show and cowboy cook out at Blazin’ M Ranch. If it’s a hot day or you feel like a break from all the adventure, the Cliff Castle Casino also has bowling and arcade games the whole family will love. Even if Mom and Dad need a break from the kids for a little while, Kids Quest at the casino is a child care option your kids will love. Directions to Camp Verde Chamber of Commerce from Verde Canyon Railroad

Star Gazing Tours

If your kids are well behaved and a little older, the clear skies, pleasant weather, and low levels of light polution in Sedona and the Verde Valley make it a perfect place to look at the stars. Locals recommend heading south on 89A or 179 a few miles and pulling off on one on a side road. You’ll know your far enough when you pull over, turn of your headlights and see no light emanating from over the hills. If you want something a little farther from major roads, take Dry Creek Road out to Boynton Canyon and turn south away from Enchantment. You can get an incredible view here by yourself, or if you’d like something more guided, do a quick search on Google for “Sedona star gazing” and you’ll find a few providers.

Tuzigoot Ruins

Sure your family is on vacation, but why not take this opportunity to have your kids learn something too! Believe it or not, just 2 miles from the Verde Canyon Railroad station in Clarkdale sits one of the finest examples of Precolumbian ruins in the Southwest. Built by the Sinagua people between 1125 and 1400 AD, Tuzigoot is the largest and best-preserved of the many Sinagua pueblo ruins in the Verde Valley. Excavated and classified as a National Monument in 1939, Tuzigoot is something fun and interesting your kids will love. Directions from Verde Canyon Railroad

Take a Ride on the Verde Canyon Railroad

If you’ve already taken some time to browse this site or have read any of the reviews from some of our riders, you know that the Verde Canyon Railroad is definitely a fun, “must do” , family friendly adventure in the small town of Clarkdale, Arizona.  Learn more about this beautiful 20 mile nature tour up Verde Canyon or reserve your tickets here first.
