Don’t Want To Drive A Car To The Grand Canyon
While some enjoy driving, others prefer different options when heading from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. One of the most popular options is taking a tour or public bus, because the cost is reasonable and it permits guests to relax and enjoy the scenery along the way. Most of the public buses depart from Flagstaff, which is about a 30-minute drive from Sedona. Another unique option is to take the Grand Canyon railway from Williams, Arizona to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Others prefer the sunshine on their faces and the wind in their hair, so they rent a motorcycle at one of the popular spots in Sedona.
