Stargazing! Unless visitors look to the night skies, however, they might miss one of the city’s biggest attractions—the unobstructed views of the heavens. The night skies over Sedona are so exceptional for stargazing, in fact, that the city was awarded the prestigious Dark Sky Community designation by the International Dark-Sky Association in 2014.
The reward for visitors for Sedona’s intentional steps to avoid light pollution is the ability to view stars, planets and constellations not visible from most other locations. There are several locations for star gazing such as Baldwin Trail, Marg’s Draw, and Turkey Creek.
