The Cave Creek Visitor’s Guide ad sales have begun for the 2022-2023 issue. We are excited to begin producing the 17th annual guide that has been promoting Cave Creek and surrounding areas for nearly two decades. “I never really intended on counting how many copies I have produced and delivered over the years but I’m pretty sure we surpassed the 700,000 mark by now. The success can really be attributed to all the spectacular and unique businesses in the area that have continued to support the guide throughout the years. In fact, we have seven businesses that have been in every issue from the beginning and that was probably the most important issue as its success led us through the next 16 years,” said Publisher & Realtor, Dale Samar. “A special thank you needs to go out to Big Bronco, Cave Creek Candles, Cave Creek Cowboy, Harold’s Corral, the Horny Toad, Rancho Manana Golf Club and Tonto Bar & Grill for their belief in me that very first year in 2006!”
