Sedona can be broken down into 3 areas:
|West Sedona, (off of 89A) is where the fire station, police station and markets are, it has the feeling of the suburbs. Most of the locals live in west Sedona and is the least scenic with the most traffic.
|Uptown, 89A (above the "Y"). This is the tourist area with many shops and day shopping. This is where the day buses drop off visitors to Sedona. Nice place to visit for several hours of shopping or a nice lunch.
|The Historic Arts District (179 below the (Y) to the Chapel), this is the area to stay in! Over 80 galleries and restaurants all within walking distance. Oak creek meanders alongside HWY 179. There are several nice b&bs in this area and Tlaquepaque and Los Abrigatos are right in the middle. El Portal is located in the heart of the Arts district.
