The Airport Mesa overlook is an impressive vista.

Oak Creek Canyon is very scenic and if you take the Oak Creek hike it is relatively flat and mostly easy to navigate. The reason I say mostly is because you have to cross the creek several times, both on the way out and on the way back in. Also, there are many areas to go to shoot Cathedral Rock. Here's where I usually go. https://www.earthtrekkers.com/how-to-photograph-cathedral-rock/

Consider a Pink Jeep tour - I took their mogollon rim tour, and the scenery was outstanding.

Check out Red Rock Crossing: https://www.allsedona.com/nature/red_rock_crossing.php. It is one of my favorites.

We took a air-tour. My daughter and I loved it. You gain a new perspective of the area...The airport also has a great restaurant.

Take the trail beginning at Call of the Canyon parking lot and plan on going at different times of the day as the light is constantly shifting in the narrow canyon. Keep watching the shadow patterns on the canyon walls and take plenty of drinking water and some snacks to keep you going. Fall colors are coming and Red-faced Warblers will shortly be gone until spring.

If you can get out of Sedona the West Fork trail is level, used to be some of the most gorgeous scenery in AZ. Hike as far as you desire, I have hiked a day to near the end where water became chest deep and the canyon walls on both sides could be touched with outstretched arms.
Montezuma Castle and Well are wonderful short walks on level grade mostly. Clarkdale Copper museum, Tuzigoot ruins very easy walk, Chapel of the Cross and many other beautiful and amazing things away from Sedona. Personally I totally dislike Sedona as it is such a tourist trap and cliché that is over photographed with all being the same. There are so many other places within an hour or less that are incredible.

Don't go on the weekend. And especially, if you go north on 89A, give yourself time to return. The line of traffic gets quite long approaching Sedona southbound on 89A.
