Over the summer I visited Maine, New Hampshire, Cape Cod and even Chicago. As a transplant to Arizona from the midwest/east coast, I wondered how I would feel as I visited my previous geography… would I find myself drawn back to the green landscapes? The humid air? The ocean? […]
It’s about a two hour drive from the Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek to Jerome, AZ, making Jerome an ideal destination for a brief getaway. In addition to being close – it is also more than 5,000 feet above sea level so it can be an escape from the Phoenix summer heat.
The drive is […]
Wildlife World is pretty amazing. Whether it’s that you are visiting PebbleCreek and want to venture out “beyond our gates”, or you have guests in town who want something local to explore – or you have lived here for years and just want to try something new (that would be me!) , Wildlife […]

So, today is the second Tuesday of the month – the “free” day at the Desert Botanical Garden (that’s the set up right now, I suppose it could change….). I decided to go. It wasn’t a first visit – I had been there to see the Chihuly Exhibit and to walk through the gardens […]
When folks visit PebbleCreek, one of the questions they frequently ask is “Where can I go for a quick get-away?” Sedona is always my first suggestion.
