2020 Best of Greater Prescott

We have our Best of Greater Prescott results for you, a detailed guide to the best providers of goods and services here, selected by our readership. These are the people and businesses who really give Greater Prescott its shine, making it pop for residents and visitors alike.

Our many, many categories are broken down into people, pets, services, lifestyle, shopping and food and drink, covering most all the facets of your life here.

It’s always a joy for us to recognize and celebrate excellence in our community, and Greater Prescott teems with it! Our readers turn to the tried and true (The Palace) and the new (Iron Cask) for their favorite meals and fixin’s, and Sundara Sanctuary for a deeply relaxing spa day.

For getting two different kinds of workouts, Red Tail Crossfit came out on top as best gym and Watters Garden Center helped people dig deep into their yards as best nursery.

And don’t forget the people and organizations who give our area its heart and soul, like favorite Pastor Ronnie Merrell from The Heights Church, or most esteemed nonprofit Launch Pad Teen Center, with its summer camps, afterschool drop-in program and more teen services.

This is just a sneak peek at this year’s award winners, the people and places who’ve helped make our hometown shimmer, no matter what else is going on in the world. Read on to see who they are, and then thank them for all they do!
