When you think of Sedona and Arizona, it’s hard not to remember the American Frontier and the Old West. Take a walk in a cowboy’s boots and experience an authentic Western town, chuckwagon dinner, horseback riding, a former ghost town, museums and even an old-fashioned train journey.
Boots & Saddles Bed & Breakfast A Southwestern-style Sedona bed & breakfast where luxury meets good old fashioned hospitality. Centrally located well off the main road but just 2.4 miles from Uptown Sedona, nestled just under Thunder Mountain and Chimney Rock, one can sense the bygone days of the Old West and the elevating energy of the local Vortex. Kick off your boots and soak in your private spa under the stars or your in-room jetted tub for two in front of the flickering fire.
Blazin’ M Ranch Experience the Old West with a visit to the Blazin’ M Ranch. An authentic replica of an 1880’s Frontier Town, Blazin’ M Ranch offers a chuckwagon supper and live Western stage show. You will enjoy the wide variety of Western sights and activities including a pony ride, shooting gallery, train ride, horseshoe pits, a mechanical roping horse, and friendly farm animals. Create a train package by combining your chuckwagon supper and show with a scenic 4-hour train ride through the picturesque Sycamore Canyon wilderness area aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad.
Verde Canyon Railroad Often called Arizona’s “Other Grand Canyon,” Verde Canyon Railroad offers passengers the opportunity to see a beautiful red rock canyon up close in all its seasonal glory. Considered one of the finest scenic train rides in North America, and the #1 outdoor attraction for visitors coming to Sedona, Arizona, passengers on the Verde Canyon Railroad enjoy this four-hour scenic train ride in first-class style aboard renovated passenger coaches and open-air viewing cars pulled by vintage locomotives. A perfect addition to any vacation.
Mogollon Rim Jeep Tour & Horseback Ride Combination Check out A Day in the West tour company and start your adventure with a scenic jeep tour up Bear Wallow Canyon to the Mogollon Rim.

Then saddle-up for a scenic one-hour horseback ride on a 45,000 head working cattle ranch.
