Sedona’s Hometown Guide
Sedona is an amazing place to call home. We are surrounded by stunning vistas, outdoor recreation at our doorsteps, art and local culture around every corner, and best of all, a community of friends and neighbors who work together to build and maintain a unique way of life in one of the best places to live, work and play in America.
Sedona has so much to share with visitors and locals, it is hard to keep track of it all. With that in mind, the Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau’s (SCC&TB) has created the latest issue of the Sedona Hometown Guide (HTG). You will find your copy of the HTG inserted in next week’s issue of the Red Rock News. The new issue of the HTG is designed for locals, and intended to be your complete go-to guide on all things Sedona. As in the past, the HTG is available for FREE to anyone interested in knowing more about Sedona’s local scene, and can be viewed digitally on any smart device.
The Sedona Hometown Guide is the Chamber’s Partner Directory. Use it to find goods and services available from friends and neighbors, right here in Sedona. Shopping local is the most powerful tool you have, to help Sedona maintain its small town, unique quality of life.
This year, the 2018-19 guide has more pages and the added feature of local street maps for Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek. We encourage you to keep it close by for instant access to local businesses, community events, and services that will make your life in Sedona more convenient and enjoyable. By having helpful information on Sedona businesses close at hand, residents can more effectively choose to do business locally where their purchases will support the community by adding jobs, generating tax dollars and driving overall economic success.
Why is that important? Because statistically it has been shown that when we shop locally, 73 cents out of dollar spent stays right here in the community. That money pays for police, fire, schools, and quality of life services we all need and want. To ensure our community succeeds, shopping locally and utilizing local professional services whenever possible, makes perfect sense.
When you open the 2018 Sedona Hometown Guide, you’ll find not only a comprehensive list of Chamber partners, but a host of helpful information to serve the needs of businesses and residents alike. We call it the Hometown Guide because we want it to be your path to local goods, services, events and culture. Once again, we provide a Calendar of Sedona’s most popular annual festivals and events, as well as a “Local’s Guide to Moving Here” for prospective new residents who receive the Hometown Guide as an introduction to the community.
This year we are going “Block by Block” describing each of our unique neighborhoods and highlighting Sedona’s rich local culture. Throughout this year’s issue you find a focus on the uniqueness of our community and our expanded efforts for sustainability to ensure we keep Sedona the Most Beautiful Place on Earth.
The SCC&TB team have worked hard to make this year’s Hometown Guide the most helpful and comprehensive issue yet. We hope you will find it a useful resource you will refer to again and again.
