Sedona – One of the Best Small Towns to Visit in 2014!

Not only do we think that, but so does the Smithsonian Magazine! It has named Sedona as one of “20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2014″ in a story in its April issue (#8 to be precise). The magazine says, “Approaching Sedona, you will feel your jaw drop as pinnacles, hoodoos and buttes rise—crimson, carmine, burnt sienna, depending on the slant of the sun. The effect makes you want to paint a Sistine Chapel even if you can’t draw a straight line.”

Jennifer Wesselhoff, president of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce, says being included on the list is an honor, stating “It’s recognition like this that helps position Sedona as a premier destination in the United States.”
