If you're in the area for more than a day or just can't spend another minute in the saddle, you can go out on a jeep tour and explore the desert backcountry, visit Vulture Peak, see some petroglyphs, or check out old mines. Call B.C. Jeep Tours (tel. 928/684-7901 or 928/231-1010; www.bcjeeptours.com), which charges $60 to $100 per person with a two-person minimum. However, if you've got time for only one jeep tour on your Arizona vacation, make it in Sedona.

Los Caballeros Golf Club, 1551 S. Vulture Mine Rd. (tel. 928/684-2704; www.loscaballerosgolf.com), has been rated one of the best courses in the state. Greens fee is $90 in the cooler months.

Hikers should head southwest of town to the end of Vulture Mine Road (off U.S. 60) to climb Vulture Peak, which is a steep but rewarding climb best done in the cooler months. The views from up top (or even just the saddle near the top) are well worth the effort. There are sometimes spectacular wildflower displays here in the spring.
