#48 – Sedona’s Fabulous Fall
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

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

Curious why Sedona has been nominated so many times for being in the Top 10 Most Beautiful Places to Live? The Red Rock Formations may have something to do with it but the fact that every season in Sedona is equally magnificent is why people just can’t stay away.

In the winter you see the towering Red Rocks dusted with snow and glistening in the sunlight. The spring brings life to all of the desert landscaping and the weather warms into the 80s. Summer monsoons in the late afternoons make it impossible not to appreciate Sedona’s natural beauty with rays of sunshine streaming down through parting clouds. Although all the seasons have beautiful weather and scenery, Fall is when you truly realize just how extraordinary living in Sedona is. By October, the extreme heat of the summer has passed and residents enjoy wonderful days filled with Sedona blue skies and perfect 75-90 degree weather.Fall Leaves in Oak Creek Canyon

Fall is our favorite season because of the changing of leaves. Everywhere in the country you see lush green trees turn the golden colors of autumn. While you are in Sedona, AZ, we encourage you to venture out and take a drive through the Oak Creek Canyon. The changing of leaves is extraordinary as you make your way by the creek, through the towering trees and up the winding road until you reach the top where you can overlook the entire Oak Creek Canyon. It’s truly an unforgettable view!

Do you want to live in the most beautiful place in America and experience all of Sedona’s gorgeous seasons? Live life in luxury! Find your perfect Sedona AZ Property for Sale on our website or view a list of Oak Creek Canyon Homes for Sale or Sedona Vacant Land for Sale.
