Sedona AZ (April 29, 2015) – Travel to Slide Rock and Red Rock State Parks in Sedona to create unforgettable family vacation memories. Both parks were selected in a recent travel poll by FamilyFun magazine readers as Top 10 State Parks in the country and were featured in the magazine’s April issue. “The winners in each category represent places where families have formed lasting memories, and offer adventures for all types of interests, for animal lovers to history and science buffs,” said Ann Hallock, Editor-in-chief.
“We are elated these parks have been nationally recognized. If you haven’t been there, you need to see it, and if you have come back! Remember these are your State Parks,” said Sue Black, Arizona State Parks Executive Director. Slide Rock State Park is named after the famous stretch of natural rock slides. Visitors plunge down into the creek and water chutes or wade and sun along the creek. Red Rock State Park is a 286-acre nature preserve and environmental education center with stunning scenery. Throughout the park, there are trails that wind through the famous red rock formations, manzanita and juniper to reach the lush banks of Oak Creek.
