A Mild Climate with Impressive Red Rock Views

People who may find the 89A corridor of Sedona a little too busy for their tastes usually find they feel right at home in the Village of Oak Creek. VOC still retains that small town charm nestled in some of the most scenic and familiar red rock views that area has to offer. Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte stand out as you travel west on Hwy 179. The estimated population from the 2010 census is 6,147 (www. quickfacts.census.gov). That is a 2.6% increase from 2000. The land area is 5.26 miles. Most residents find housing prices very friendly and inviting. If you like golf, the area boasts three golf courses; Oak Creek Country Club, Canyon Mesa, and Sedona Golf Resort.

Big Park/Village of Oak Creek/Pine Valley is an area that is in the transitional climate zone, just like Sedona 86336. It is about an 1:15 hours north of the Sonoran Desert and about 40 minutes from the southern border of the Colorado Plateau.  Humidity is not a factor in personal comfort. Warmer and colder weather is less noticeable because of the lack of humidity. Another reason why staying hydrated is so important. Basically, an individual can tolerate much warmer and colder temperatures because humidity does not play a part.
