Travelers looking to renew mind, body, and spirit should head to Sedona, two hours' drive from Phoenix. There are lots of fancy resorts in the area, but a more affordable home rental would be a good base for visits to Red Rock State Park, which alone is worth a trip — many say it's better than the Grand Canyon. Be sure to also check out Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, Merry-Go-Round Rock, and the "Vortexes," where some believe spiritual energies swirl. Yoga, meditation, psychic readings, and crystal shops are abundant. Outdoor enthusiasts can hike, drive scenic tours, take horseback rides, or barrel around on ATVs.
