All American Road – State Route 179

on January 15, 2006

A 7.5-mile stretch of State Route 179 that runs through Oak Creek village, near Sedona (pop. 10,192), is Arizona’s first All-American Road, a federal designation recognizing the road as a destination, rather than a route to somewhere. Route 179, between mileposts 302.5 and 310, also is known as Red Rock Scenic Road for red-hued rock formations along the highway.
