Prescott "Everybody's Home Town"

Prescott is a small thriving city located in the mountains of north-central Arizona only 90 miles, but a world away, from metropolitan Phoenix.  The town is nestled in a scenic valley at the northern edge of the rugged Bradshaw Mountains.  The pine-clad mountains above town reach heights of nearly 8,000ft, but downtown Prescott sits at 5,400ft.

The climate is a delightful combination of four moderate seasons with monsoon rains in the late summer and snow in the winter producing an average of 19" precipitation per year.  The high percentage of sunny days each year provides ideal conditions for outdoor recreation opportunities.  The area is well known for its picturesque lakes set in striking pre-Cambrian granite formations and wooded pine forests.  Residents and visitors enjoy miles of hiking, horseback, and mountain bike trails throughout the forests surrounding town.

Prescott's central downtown business district is built around an elm-shaded, traditional courthouse plaza. The historic plaza hosts activities throughout the year ranging from bustling art shows, evening music concerts, antique fairs, and family oriented community events.
