have you ever been to Switzerland? Probably not. Highest standard of living... It is okay to be a patriot but don't bash what you don't know. And, yes, I am here because I am interested in learning more about Sedona.

Too bad you never chose to learn to read or write in America. How can anyone in there right mind take you seriously when you write like a 5 year old.

I found Sedona to be full of rich hippies. Made me feel right at home.

Absolutely love the food and drinks at Elote.

The worst things that ever happened to Sedona:
New Age hypocrites
Newly rich adults
Greedy capitalists
Demanding tourists with filthy habits
Local resident resentment greed and elitism
Religious elitism
Wealthy retirees
The widened 89A Highway
The politics or egoism in all their public offices
General, all around pretentiousness.

Mind you, this is and has been happening all over the country and in Arizona where beauty is capitalized upon to such a degree, that the area's foundational beauty I eliminated for profit.

I won't even get into the Mormons and racist chapters abiding in the surrounding areas.

Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. owns and operates the highest quality portfolio of resort communities in the United States. This is what many read when handed their papers for property when considering a move into Beautiful Sedona Arizona. Unfortunatly many soon discover as they settle into what for many believe is their retirement years, actually a last home for many located in
Sedona Shadows the Age-Restricted (55+) Community located @6770 W SR 89A #100

Sedona, AZ 86336 Has become very expensive and run by very corrupt owners and management. There is a woman who seriously believes she is doing a great job. I accidentally over heard her as she has even bragged and boosted of how many people dislike her, I personalty find that so sad in an already cruel and unjust world. This woman whose name is Darla Barrett does all her cruel and intentional harm through the guise of Upper Management. When I say cruel It is a form of a harassment she imposes on many of the tenants , She is like an abusive husband, but you the public can not see the elders marks there are no bruises but the wounds she inflicts are more serious and longer lasting.I had gotten to know a few tenants prior to my moving in, I wish I had listened to the warnings. Now I am just sad and have even contemplated suicide as a way to escape this Hell Hole Called Sedona Shadows I am not saying I am Suicidal, But there are days I so hate being stuck here and seeing her goofy smile, and yes it is such a goofy smile for you know soon after you ove in here what a rock hard heart she hides, as she rides around in her golf cart. I of course would leave no note so this women with no soul will never know how she affects we who are just trying to survive these horrific economical times. Oh I shall forgive this soulless women Darla Barrett for I feel That is what is right, I hope it is something that naturally will pass through us as we exit this cruel world. I can only hope someday she will learn that what others feel from you especially Darla Barrett, when you try to control their lives , yes Darla Barrett it is very very important. May you be forgiven for you callousness.

I have lived in Sedona for just 6 months. I am in my 30's, and am a photographer.

IT'S A SMALL TOWN, OK! So you are not going to have a bustling nightlife, shopping malls and big town amenities.

I came here to get away from big town problems, such as traffic, crime, high population density and simply big town stress. I love the outdoors, so when it comes to scenery, Sedona and surrounding areas are VERY hard to beat. So far I have found the locals to be very friendly and accommodating, especially business owners. estaurants and groceries are a little more expensive here; however the quality is excellent for the most part, and you can definitely find good deals.

Even for an avid outdoor enthusiast, Sedona takes a little time to get used to, but life here is of very high quality...IF you value nature, quiet, health and relaxation.

Sedona is a wonderful place to retire. I live in Sedona Shadows and it's an active 55+ community with affordable housing. Just love waking up in the morning and taking a long walk enjoying the awesome red rock views.

Presently I reside in NE Tennessee. Always been curious about Sedona. If possible provide me some 'inside information'(other than what I can find on the net) about residing there. Since I am a single woman my main concerns include - crime, demographics, jobs, places of interest, etc. Thanking everyone for their input.
I live in Cottonwood, which is about 15 miles away. All I know of Sedona is mostly the constant scamming such as "art studios" asking for donations to build some ridiculous stairway to the stars project, but I doubt if the money goes anywhere except into someone's pocket. There is a very active meth/cocaine community driving all over Cottonwood/Jerome/Sedona looking for someone parking at the convenience store and not locking their car so the meth addicts can zoom in and snatch something off the seat... usually within the first 30 seconds of closing the door, while you are just entering the store and your back is turned. Cottonwood is run by a cliques and Sedona is too I imagine. You know, the people who speed thru town 15 miles over the limit and don't have to worry about getting stopped cause they "have friends". If you don't have serious friends in this area don't even bother, they will probably run you out of town and keep your house if they don't like you.

Well folks, all I've read on the MayanMajix website about Sedona, AZ is turning out to be a bunch of bull. From the looks of all the comments. I'm scratching Sedona off my list of places I'd like to visit.

Oh, by the way...Alex Jones is Bill Hicks. Bill Hicks was the father of the Truth Movement, Esoterical Egomaniacism, and the Great Spiritual Awakening. LOL, he was a freakin COMEDIAN! I've spent 7 years trying to "Enlighten" myself until I discovered Bill Hicks. I feel like I've been had. Now I can finally say it.....Don't take my word for it, go ahead and do your own research. LOLOLOLOLOL There, I am finally a Truth Movement guru! Now send me money if you want more enlightenment. I'll be happy to oblige.

I have lived in Sedona for about a year with my young daughter. We came here from PHX to seek peace and quiet, open-mindedness and cooler weather. While I do agree that the school system needs to be severely improved upon and that the town itself seems to cater to the older population as opposed to young families, the people I've met (yes, many with young children) are incredible! The Sedona Library Kid's Room helps to connect families with wonderful activities, daily. I've been to many libraries all over AZ and NONE compare to the warmth I've experienced in Sedona. It is a beautiful town and life is quiet and simple (just stay away from uptown if you dislike tourist traps). Work is difficult to come by, unless you want to work at a resort. I've read some awful things on this forum and agree that if you look negatively at any place, you will find things lacking. Sedona has so many positive attributes and the natural energy alone is worth everything.

I wish this thread didn't turn into a forum of trolls degrading and fighting with each other. I really need advice about retiring to Sedona. Is there anyone in this forum who can give a realistic picture for a single 59 year old retiree who needs real information about Sedona Shadow other than some inconsequential park manager. I am already used to high prices and crowds since I live in a Ca. beach resort town.

I've lived in Sedona since 1977. I came here in my youth and now getting old in a town, which has become a city that I love. I'm still amazed at the beauty I drive by every day, or look out my window at Bell Rock. After all these years I still say to myself, "I LIVE HERE!" The energy is special here, if you are one that can feel such things. People smile a lot, are friendly, say 'hello' to strangers, are calmer, speak and walk slower, take their time.
It has sadly grown up, plowed under so much nature to build houses and malls. Still, with the changes it's one of the most beautiful areas in the world. It's small, you can see it in a day easily, but the feeling lasts a lifetime. Come visit. See if it might be for you.
Many get "Red Rock Fever" and sell everything and move out immediately, only to a few years later regreat it. It's small, We zip up Sedona at night. Sedona magnifies your weaknesses. Many people drink here due to boredom. Don't come here to be happy, be a happy person and come here. What ever is your weakness will multiply, that's the power of Sedona Grow with it or become stunned

Great place to visit. Would NOT live there. I had a friend there. I don't understand what the one poster was complaining about, the place is run by liberals, they believe in hand outs, and THAT is why the homeless and people who are stupid or lazy stay there. You feed one hand, a thousand more appear. A professional, or a business owner would do well there, otherwise not. Flagstaff just away, is a lot like the California town of Mt.Shasta. Timber and real nature, not a desert at all. Visit and enjoy Sedona, but if you are a conservative, keep your yap shut !:)
