In Sedona, Arizona, you can catch a sunset over red rock formations. You can hike through a dry river bed in the desert and then take a dip in a cool river afterward. You can camp for free just about anywhere off the side of the road (check!). You can even taste a bit of Mexico in the heart of this town. Tlaquepaque, meaning "the best of everything," according to the center's website, is a shopping center in downtown Sedona. Dine at a Mexican(-American) restaurant and peruse the art galleries sprinkled all over the shopping center. Or simply stroll through the beautiful grounds.
