365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Rob & Pam Schabatka – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

Sedona Sweet Cider, a place where you can purchase fresh local apples and homemade apple cider is definitely one of our favorite reasons to live in Sedona. If you ever find yourself traveling from West Sedona to the Village of Oak Creek (which most of us that live in the Village do on a daily basis) be sure to stop by Sedona Sweet Cider and taste some of Sedona’s Sweetness!

Directions to Sedona Sweet Cider
As you are traveling to the Village of Oak Creek from West Sedona you will drive past the Shops at the Hillside & the King’s Random Hotel (on your left). Continuing on, you will go through a round-a-bout and begin down a hill. Keep an eye out for the Sedona Sweet Cider sign on the right-hand side! There is a tent set up year round with fresh apples & homemade cider for sale.

Living in a town where the soil is plentiful allows many Sedona Residents to have gardens and gives the opportunity for local business’ such as Sedona Sweet Cider to share their mouthwatering, local produce. We encourage all of our readers to take the time to buy a cup of Homemade Apple Cider; it will be your first of many!

#96 – Sedona AZ Horse Trails
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Rob & Pam Schabatka – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

One reason we love living in Sedona AZ is the various outdoor activities that one can do to take advantage of Sedona’s awe-inspiring countryside – the possibilities are endless!

And although anything outdoors in Sedona is spectacular, riding horse in Red Rock Country is an activity many Sedona residents enjoy. On any given day if you take a drive out on Sedona roads such as Dry Creek, Red Rock Loop or Verde Valley School Road, be prepared for a glimpse of the old west. Horse riders often travel on the shoulder of roads, on their way to some of the many trails in and around Sedona AZ, typically on the outskirts of town.

As Sedona Realtors we often hear that living near a ranch or having property with horse capacity is very important when looking to buy. Are you a horse lover that dreams of riding every day throughout Sedona’s majestic scenery? If so, consider a move to Sedona.
