If you’d rather explore the desert backcountry by jeep than on horseback, call B.C. Jeep Tours (www.bcjeeptours.com; tel. 928/684-7901), which charges $75 per person with a two-person minimum. If you’ve got time for only one jeep tour on your Arizona vacation, however, make it in Sedona.

Los Caballeros Golf Club, 1551 S. Vulture Mine Rd. (www.loscaballerosgolf.com; tel. 928/684-2704) has been rated one of the best courses in the state. Greens fees range $85 to $125 in the cooler months.

Southwest of town at the end of Vulture Mine Rd. (off U.S. 60), hikers can hit the trails around Vulture Peak, which include 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.
