“It only takes one visit to fall in love with Prescott,” shares Realtor Chris Kuknyo of West USA Realty of Prescott.

“It usually starts Downtown at one of the many events on the historic Courthouse Plaza. Art shows, musical events or beer and wine festivals make for a great stroll around the shady plaza. If you rather get your blood pumping, participate in a mountain bike race or marathon through the forest. Some visitors are shocked when a stranger says, ‘Howdy’ but that is the way Prescott rolls. Traditions run deep here as we are home to The World’s Oldest Rodeo® where the cowboy way is celebrated every July.”

Kuknyo continues, “As Arizona’s official Christmas City, thousands flock to the Courthouse lighting to hear the reading of the Christmas story and carols sung before the switch is thrown that illuminates a hundred trees and the Courthouse itself. Quiet and personal time is also highly valued in the Mile High City and experienced along the many miles of developed trails and peaceful lakes.”

“The climate has been described as perfect,” Kuknyo says. “There are not many places in Arizona that get all four seasons without the extremes of Phoenix or Flagstaff. Locals are welcoming to newcomers, just as they were welcomed themselves on arrival. Once people ‘feel’ Prescott, it’s not surprising that they want to become a part of ‘Everyone’s Home Town.’”
