Sedona Heritage Museum – 735 Jordan Road

Very kid friendly and hands on.  Interesting information, including an old school room and telegraph station

Model Airplane Club Airport – Forest Road 525 – South of Sedona on 89A

Early morning is the most active time for this airport.  Although the kids can’t actually fly the airplanes, the people flying their toys are very kind and love to show off their skills.  This is a miniature airfield and little boys love it.

Out of Africa – 3505 Rt. 260 in Camp Verde

The giraffe encounter on your tour bus is very hands on.  They also have a zip line that goes over the entire park.

Pink Jeep Tours

Although they do allow kids over 18 months, the ride is very bumpy and we’ve found that age is 5 is a bit more fun for the children.

Sedona Public Library – 3250 White Bear Road

Check their website   for activities.  The kids area has lots of interactive activities and they offer many planned activities for different age groups

Walking in Uptown – Uptown Sedona

There are many fun things for children to do while wandering the street and many shops.   Many musical instruments are spread around the street for the kids to play.  There is usually a man with snakes and spiders in the center of town that allows hands on interaction for the children.  

Sedona Trolley Tours – 928/282-4211 Reservations $15

They offer 2 different 55 minute tours on an old fashion, open air trolley bus.  Fully narrated tour gives you beautiful views and historical information about Sedona.  Do this one early in your stay as you’ll see some things you’d like to revisit.

Best Hikes for Little Ones – Off 179 towards the Village of Oak Creek

Bell Rock – This has a very large and easy trail for little ones to run.  You do not need to climb any rocks, unless you want to.

West Fork – Up Oak Creek canyon, you will Passover Midgley bridge and slide rock area.  There is a parking fee and the lots fills up quickly, so go early.  Great trails that cross back and forth over the creek.  Kids really love this hike
