June Sedona Events

Toss your jacket aside, grab your sandals and head for the creek! There's nothing more refreshing than a plunge into the water after a long hike.  Red Rock Crossing, the most photographed area in Sedona, is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Southwest Inn, and offers one of the best swimming holes in town.  Hurry to reserve your room at the Southwest Inn and ask about the many ways to cool off during the hot summer months.
