City of Sedona

The City of Sedona was incorporated in 1988 and is one of the western United States’ premier tourism, recreation, retirement, viticulture, and art centers, all of which contribute to its economic base. Its history is that of a rural ranching community, far off the beaten path, yet the beauty of the region became known through the motion picture industry with many classic films, commercials, and television shows filmed in the rural area surrounding the city. Characterized by massive red-rock formations, as well as the contrasting riparian areas of Oak Creek Canyon, the area encompassing this beloved community is considered as beautiful as many of our national parks. Located in the high southwestern desert under the rim of the Colorado Plateau at an elevation of 4,500 feet, Sedona is blessed with four mild seasons, and plenty of sunshine and clean air. The year-round population of Sedona is approximately 11,000 residents, while the seasonal/visitor population often triples that number on a regular basis.
