“My first wife and I used to spend the winters in Mexico and one year we decided to come back to Washington through Sierra Vista. We liked it so much that the next year we stayed in Sierra Vista a bit longer, and then the following year we spent a whole winter here. Soon we found we didn’t really want to leave, so we moved here.

“The climate is almost perfect and the people are friendly. Everyone I asked never had a bad word to say about Sierra Vista and now I can see why. After first looking over other places in the Southwest, I can’t imagine a nicer place to call home.”Ernie Lassich

“In Sierra Vista, outdoor recreation opportunities are virtually unlimited. Great hiking and bicycling are minutes from our front door and just about every sport you can think of isn’t just readily available, it can be enjoyed all year long. If winter mornings are chilly, the afternoons are pleasant, and when summer afternoons heat up, the mornings and evenings are inviting. Plus you never have to fight traffic, an airport is a short drive away, and there are numerous day trips in the area to enjoy.”John and Pat Wettack

“When looking for our retirement home, we knew we wanted to live someplace beautiful, with a climate that would enable us to enjoy the outdoors year-round and a community that features a balance between big city amenities and small town charm. Having served in the military, we also wanted to be close to a base to enjoy the benefits it provides. Sierra Vista hit all the marks and now we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.”Ted and Melanie Mouras
