#130 – Sedona AZ’s Proximity to Jerome
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Sedona Property Partners – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

A part of Sedona that all of the residents here love is the scenery. Sedona is a place that draws people in by the unique characteristics such as Red Rocks, Oak Creek and the various vortexes. One thing that we really love about living in Sedona is our town’s uniqueness compared to the surrounding towns. If we want a change of scenery for a special occasion, it doesn’t take long to get out of town and find the perfect spot!

Jerome is another tourist town in Arizona, only 40 minutes from Sedona. Jerome’s unique atmosphere attracts Sedona residents who love to walk through the shops and restaurants! Jerome is known as a “ghost town”, the location of an old insane asylum that served the Sedona-Verde Valley area. This makes Jerome especially fun at Halloween time!

Jerome’s rustic, old-fashion look provides the perfect spot for photography opportunities or just a day walking through the old boutique shops. We love spending time in Jerome! Photography is one of the main ways Jerome attracts people from Sedona. Red Rock High School photography students usually take trips to Jerome to capture photos with a different abstract look behind them.

A note for the chocolate lover – the fudge factory is one of our favorite parts of the town. The homemade fudge is “to die for”. No matter what draws you into Jerome, our advice is to stop at the fudge factory to pick up a snack for the way home!

Sedona’s proximity to Jerome is our #130 Reason to live in Sedona. Do you want to live close enough to visit Jerome frequently without having to live in the “vertical” city? Visit our website to find property in Sedona so that you can go to Jerome anytime! Feel free to email us or call us at 928-282-4166 x 253 if you have any questions while viewing the website or if you would like more information about Sedona! We look forward to hearing from you!

#59 – Jerome AZ
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

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

Living in Sedona, we feel very fortunate for our location in proximity to the many interesting towns in the Verde Valley, particularly Jerome, AZ. Legendary for being the “One of America’s Most Vertical City” and “Arizona’s Best Ghost Town” Jerome is a must-see for any Arizona tourist.

We love Jerome for the year-round artistic atmosphere and unique boutique shops. Taking a drive up Cleopatra Hill to spend the day browsing and people watching is never a dull experience. During the month of October Jerome has several spooky events, including a Guided Ghost Walk and the Fireman’s Halloween Ball.

Jerome’s Halloween Ball

On Friday, October 29th the Jerome Firemen will host the 35th annual Halloween Ball located at Spook Hall on Hull Ave. This adult only ball has been voted the ‘best costume party in the United States’. Starting at 8pm this $10 event includes live entertainment and a cash bar, with all proceeds benefiting the local fire department. If you have too much fun in Jerome, don’t worry. There is a “haunted” hotel that may have space to accommodate “patients”.

The Haunted Hotel

We dare all of you audacious people to spend the night in the Jerome Grand Hotel in the days near Halloween. The hotel is located in the historically renovated building of twentieth century hospital that has been haunted since its days of treating patients with psychological illnesses. HauntedHouses.com claims,

“The people in the hospital and today in the hotel hear talking, coughing, hard breathing, moaning and cries of distress from pain on every floor, which came not from the living patients / people themselves but from past ones no longer there in bodily form.”

Spend a night in the Grand Hotel and you might just get more entertainment than you paid for.

If you are interested in reveling in Jerome’s unique atmosphere but would like to come home at the end of the day to a quieter ambiance, you may want to consider Sedona.
