Exploring Sedona: Family-Friendly Activities

Couple hiking in Sedona, Arizona
In a state filled with natural wonders like the Grand Canyon, Sedona might just be one of the most beautiful spots in Arizona. Known for its majestic red rocks, Sedona is a family-favorite destination with outdoor adventures waiting to be discovered.* And no visit would be complete without a stay at Hyatt Vacation Club at Piñon Pointe. While you’re there, stop by the Concierge desk for details about these activities* and how eligible Owners can use points to Go BEYOND on vacation.

Picnic at Red Rock Crossing

Professional photographers come to Red Rock Crossing to capture Sedona's famous Cathedral Rock reflected in Oak Creek. Families enjoy the same spectacle at the Crescent Moon Picnic Site. Pick up sandwiches for the kids and bread, cheese, charcuterie, and a bottle of Arizona wine for the grown-ups— and savor Mother Nature at her best.
Chapel of the Holy Cross, Arizona

Chapel of the Holy Cross

Sedona is known for being an energy vortex, and you may feel it yourself at The Chapel of the Holy Cross. The church blends perfectly into the red rocks, but it was originally slated to be built in Budapest, Hungary, with the help of Lloyd Wright, son of iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright. When World War II broke out, plans changed and the building's benefactor, Marguerite Brunswig Staude, decided to build the church in her native Arizona. Visiting this soaring space is a must, and as a bonus, the view of Sedona is next to none.

Jeep Tour

To fully appreciate the red rock landscape, it helps to go off-road and get into the canyons. One of the best ways to do this is via a Jeep tour. Depending on your 4x4 adventure, you'll likely visit iconic Sedona sites like Thunder Mountain, Doe Mesa, and Bear Mountain. Along the way, you'll also learn about the history of the area and the formation of the red rocks. You’ll have plenty of chances to capture some awe-inspiring shots for your social media feeds. Portfolio Points Owners, be sure to visit The Lounge to learn more about ways to use your Points for this experience.

Trail Rides

Explore Sedona on horseback if you prefer to see the dramatic red rocks at a slower pace. A typical trail ride might take you through Dead Horse Ranch State Park alongside the Verde River or to Horse Mountain in Echo Canyon. From here, you'll get views of Northern Arizona's vineyards.


One of Arizona's biggest draws is golfing, and Sedona doesn't disappoint. Golfers can hit the links at the championship course at the Sedona Golf Resort or tee up at the Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr. designed course at Oak Creek Country Club. Both clubs offer golf lessons and rental clubs.

Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village

This gem features more than 50 unique galleries and boutiques. The architecture mimics a traditional Mexican village with incredible art, crafts, photography, and jewelry. It's the perfect place to go for special Sedona souvenirs. When you need a break and a bite to eat, you'll find everything from gourmet salads and sandwiches to Mexican and American cuisine, along with chocolates and handmade ice cream.
All available activities can be found with a visit to The Lounge.

Food and Drink

Discover Wine in Arizona

Some say Sonoma, others say Sedona. Arizona might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of a wine-forward vacation, but Sedona — and the nearby Verde Valley — have become hot spots for the state's growing wine culture.

Winemaking in the Verde Valley dates back to the 17th century, but it's only been on the wine connoisseur's radar in the last decade. From your home base at Hyatt Vacation Club Sedona, Piñon Pointe, it's easy to make a day of wine tasting in nearby Cornville or Cottonwood — both are in close proximity to the resort.
