The City of Prescott is the place to be for visitors and residents! Its locality places it in the middle of the natural beauty of North Central Arizona. Rock and mountain formations such as Thumb Butte, the Granite Dells and Granite Mountain are nearby, and the towering San Francisco Peaks of Flagstaff are easily seen from Prescott.
Nearby lakes such as Watson, Willow, Lynx and Goldwater, coupled with many forested trails, provide ample opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
Prescott also offers the modern features you would expect to find in a growing community, such as a variety of shopping and dining establishments, recreation facilities and quality housing, award-winning educational institutions and outstanding medical facilities.
Still, its western roots are deep, and one only needs to be here in July at rodeo time to see just how deep they are! Prescott Frontier Days has the distinction of being the World’s Oldest Rodeo®, and its week-long schedule includes rodeo performances, a parade, arts and crafts show, block dancing and more.
Prescott’s friendly people make visiting or living here a true experience, providing unsurpassed hospitality to all. With more than 40,000 already calling Prescott home, it’s no wonder this area is thriving.
Come see for yourself why Prescott has been recognized over and over by national media as one of the premier places to visit, live and establish a business.
