Prescott, Arizona is dubbed as "Everyone's Hometown." Located in the mountains of north central Arizona in Yavapai County, surrounded by National Forest, and sitting at a mile-high elevation, Prescott has a perfect climate with four distinct but gentle seasons.
Prescott’s charming downtown centers on an old-fashioned town square with an historic courthouse, but what surrounds it is anything but old fashioned. Upscale shops and restaurants, art and antiques, and just about everything in between make Prescott’s historic downtown the place to be.
Prescott is a great place for an active lifestyle, too. You can kayak at Watson Lake, hike, bike, or ride horses or quads in the National Forest, or play one of our many signature golf courses. Although Prescott is consistently rated as one of the best places to retire, there are plenty of activities for all ages. We're a very dog friendly community, have a very vibrant downtown nightlife, and there's fabulous shopping with boutiques, antique shops, artisans, and more.
