September Sedona Events

The hot Summer is finally over and October is in sight.  The start of Fall is a beautiful time to visit the area.  It's warm enough for an afternoon at Slide Rock, but don't forget your jacket when you head out for the evening.  These early Fall days are perfect for a jeep tour or a visit to our local vineyards for an afternoon wine tasting tour. Let the award winning staff at the Southwest Inn help plan a memorable visit to Sedona.
