PHOENIX — Sedona is known for its red rocks and for being a vacationer’s paradise in the middle of the Arizona desert.
The Huffington Post released a list of the 10 best small cities in America, placing Sedona ninth.
The list is based on results from a Conde Nast Traveler reader survey.
Sedona, with a population of 10,000, was praised for its natural beauty, soaring mesas and sculptural canyon walls that loom over the town.
A favorite for classic Hollywood Western shoots, and home to artists and retirees, mountain bikers and New Age healers, there’s no denying the ultra-eclectic vibe here.
Atop the list is Santa Fe, N.M., for its symbolic art, architecture, food and crafts of centuries of Native American Spanish and Mexican influence.
Small cities also acknowledged were: Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., Napa, Calif., Telluride, Colo., Newport, R.I., Santa Barbara, Calif., Jackson Hole, Wyo., Aspen, Colo. and Key West, Fla.
