SEDONA — Only a few Sedona streets go in a straight line. Equally interesting are the names. There is no First Street in Sedona. No Elm Street, either. Instead, the city has streets named after caffeine, like Coffee Pot Road, Silex Circle, Nescafe Drive and Lipton Drive. And antique auto streets, like Stanley Steamer Drive, Maxwell Drive, Stutz Bearcat Road, Essex Road and Reo Road.
Some names reflect Sedona’s western heritage — Johnny Guitar Street, Zane Grey Drive, Shotgun Drive, Flaming Arrow Way, Fabulous Texan Way and Eagle Dancer Road. The city has been featured in several movies, which is the probable reason for Paramount, Columbia and Universal Drives.
But, to make sure nobody gets too serious about driving around here, the city fathers also approved Doodlebug Road. And to satisfy the poets, they okayed Quail Tail Trail.
