I think the title says it all. Maybe the the most scenic road in the country. The redrocks rise above the desert. amazing. Be sure to check out the different scenic points, especially at sunset.

Sedona is beautiful, if you get a chance you must visit! I've been to many places but this was by far the most beautiful! As you drive into Sedona the scenery is breathtaking.

Drove through Sedona from South and the scenic ways with the view of red rocks is just breathtaking. Spent few hours in the small beautiful town and one feels like he/she is in different world. Would love to stay their for a short hike, who know in future -;)

Sedona used to be a quiet little town that was great for getting away and seeing the sights. In the last decade, it has become a sprawling tourist attraction. Still lots to see and do, but you have to go further to get the solitude that used to be next door.

Loved every thing about the area I felt like I died and went to Heaven. Even an Ace hardware looked good with all the red rocks in background and sky so beautiful, and there flowers sitting outside, perfect picture view.

Our hotel was right off this road; so we would go up and down the route at least 2 times a day. Great spot!

This connects from I-17 to the Oak Creek Canyon. It is a gorgeous drive. You have to stop and go to vista points along the way. Some of my suggestions are, Bell Rock Vista aroun Village of Oak Canyon, Holy Chapel, Hillside plaza (an art gallery here also), few art galleries after that on the right side, go right at... More

try to avoid the summer if you can't take the heat! Other than that wear comfortable shoes, Avoid wearing white so you don't get red dust on you and enjoy what nature has to offer!
