I dont think those two words discribe many cities...Sedona is one. I will also add that I am the furthest thing from a "druggie" as they come. I do however happen to work in law enforcement, so I can speak first hand on numbers and stats from Cottonwood and surrounding areas, so I am very aware of the reality that exists.

I just returned from a visit to Sedona and my wife and I trully enjoyed it. I was there back in 1998 and it has clearly expanded. I didn't witness any homless problem? Coming from Brooklyn New York where we are flooded with homeless, drug addicts, and illegal alliens. I guess every town has its own variation of degenerates? I for one see Sedona as a recession proof area to live and work due to the enormous attraction by the flow of visitors. It can't be much worse than NY where some saleries haven't gone up in 20 years and taxes are high.

Well, rustnchrome, thanks for your views. I hear that the rats have taken over in NYC....last I heard the furry little rodents outnumber the human population by 6 to 1. Well, thanks Mr. Bloomberg from saving New Yorkers from the evils of "too large" soft drinks. Whaddaguy, eh?

Sedona is really not a place to live. People are rude and illiterate. Bunch of woo woos believe in vortexes and physics and all the other nonsense. Uptown is a tourist trap, restaurants are overly priced with poor food quality. Sedona is only good for what made Sedona famous to begin with which are red rocks and hiking trails. They are great but that is about it. The people here are just hideous and tourism is ruining this great wonder of the world.

I too am thinking of moving to Sedona from Fountain Hills. Several people have said it was very liberal and political. Also kind of boring. Does anyone else feel that way and do you spend a lot of time in Cottonwood or Flagstaff for regular shopping? What do retired people do all day?

I wish Sedona was like it was when I first drove thru it in 1970....or better yet, when I visited it as a kid 10 years earlier. Just a dinky town, the whole attraction was the canyon & the rocks. To see what I mean, rent How The West Was Won.
Then afterwards think about how much has been lost.

I visited Sedons for the first time a week ago and fell in love with it, but I did notice the locals are not very nice to the tourists and I think the city needs tourism to survive. I though of moving there or buying a second home, but after reading some of the posts I am having second thoughts.

Man, how can you say that? 1970 or even 1960? Think about how much has been lost? Poor, kid....I remember how quick I could get through the lines at Disneyland in 1970...or even EARLIER in 1960. To see what I mean watch, "The Wonderful World of Disney". Then, afterward, think about how much has been lost (Gomer).

Sedona is a great place to live the first year,after that it is very boring and people know everything about each other because its a small town and stuff travels very fast. Very touristy, I've lived in sedona for 5 years and am very sick of it and of a lot of people here. Can't wait to relocate!

Now THAT is an understandable gripe. Small towns can be a real pain that way! Some posters in here just complain about the politics or money or whatever.........lack of privacy is at least a good reason to vent!:)

I bought a home in Sedona in June 2012 as a second home. It has been the best decision ever. I got great value for the dollar on my 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch with beautiful views. I was welcomed into the community and found that my life was full and wonderful with music, art, film, wildlife and natural beauty. If I had one complaint, food is expensive in both restaurants and grocery stores but that is to be expected for a number of factors. For the sunshine, natural beauty, wildlife, and location near so many National Parks, I feel it was the best move of my life. I would encourage anyone to consider Sedona as a very special place to choose to live. I am not super wealthy, but I do agree that you must bring money to Sedona, it is not a place the average person is going to have a career in, it is a place one chooses and works toward when they can afford it. For most, that will be retirement. I vacationed in Sedona when my family was young and now I can afford to retire there at 57. I can't tell you how good I feel in that sunshine and low humidity!!!

I spend the most time shopping in Cottonwood because of the Home Depot and Walmart, I also love Cottonwood's historic area and restaurants. I am never bored, there is so much to do I can't do it all. I have not one regret for buying my home in Sedona...I am 57, well educated, well traveled, and I still pinch myself that I own a home in Sedona!

Coming from WV I'm just guessing you might feel a bit out of place in Sedona. You might want to check out some other AZ towns like Globe or Superior.
