I second day trips to Jerome (old mining town) and Arcosanti (hard to describe, but it’s like a futurist experimental city from the 60s that was only partially completed; people still live there and run tours of it, and I think travelers can even camp there). 

Sedona itself is kind of sleepy, but beautiful for hiking. The main part of the city is fairly small, and then there are a series of strip malls throughout the area with more businesses. I’d recommend the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, which is a cute complex of shops and restaurants in the center of town. There are also a lot of spa resort places around Sedona – from very high end spas to more normal ones – if you want to spend a day or part of a day getting massages and relaxing. 

For local food, some of the best tamales I’ve ever had were from a little casual spot in Sedona called Tamaliza. It’s nothing fancy but it’s delicious.

hotsytotsy :  Oak Creek is a drive, actually.  It goes from Sedona to Flagstaff and Slide Rock is en route.  The other hike was long but I don’t recall it being difficult. I’m no professional hiker here.  And regarding Jerome, there isn’t a lot there – we just walked up and down town and then left for other things.  It’s a mining town that became a ghost town that became an artist community, in essence.  Quirky stores, don’t recall the restaurants at all.  Not a big place, right on the side of a mountain – really dumb place to build.  For fun, look up BareNakedLadies Jerome… I don’t know why they were ever there, but they wrote a song about it and it’s spot on.

I’m actually surprised at some of these comments because I LOVE Sedona and am actually planning a trip to go back. I find it magical. Look up all of the vortexes, beautiful hikes and views from each one. There are a few restaurants downtown that are amazing, and surprisingly a pizza place also downtown had great food. 

We actually spent a day trip and drove to the Grand Canyon which I highly recommend if you have never been there before.

There are many local artists that make beautiful work so stopping in the galleries is nice as well.
