Living in Prescott, Arizona, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t absolutely love our small town.

With the amazing outdoor living, four mild seasons of weather, beautiful nature scenery and downtown, and so much more, it’s not surprising that Prescott has been recognized on multiple occasions by numerous printing presses around the nation. From Arizona magazines to national magazines such as Times, Prescott has had more than its fair share of the spotlight.

This time, Prescott has been named the best Value town in the whole Southwest by Sunset Magazine, beating out Scottsdale, Silver City, New Mexico, and Los Alamos, New Mexico.

The article talked about Prescott’s quality of life, emphasizing outdoor recreation such as our amazing trails and lakes. With our dramatic boulder landscapes to our towering pines, there are plenty of scenic places and vistas to awe and inspire. The article also touched on our Old West heritage, mentioning the Palace and Whiskey Row.

Precott E-News said that City Manager Michael Lamar, is pleased that Prescott is earning positive recognition.  “It’s easy to see why Prescott is being recognized in so many ways,” he said. “There is so much opportunity including heritage, arts, culture, outdoor recreation, and a variety of educational opportunities.  We believe that Prescott is on the rise, and recognition like this confirms it.”
