Prescott Valley is a nice little town. The weather is pretty nice all year round with not too much snow in the winter and it doesn't get crazy hot in the summer. The slight downfall is that it is very windy all spring and summer. There is a nice movie theatre, bowling alley, and public pool but other than that there is not a whole lot to do around here except relax and enjoy the breath-taking sunsets and sunrises. The schools around here are incredibly under-funded but they are truly amazing with dedicated staff and excellent classroom conditions considering there is not always enough money to buy updated equipment. Overall, this town is enjoyable!

Prescott Valley is a beautiful town with great local views such as parks, skateparks, trails, lakes, libraries and museums. Local venues bars and grills, restaurants, casinos, nightlife activities, street fairs, county fairs, craft shows, concerts, and movie theaters . It's a great place to visit or move to. A wonderful place to raise your family or simply retire too. Awesome school district! The only thing I would change is the speed limit and the town could use a drive-in theater and a Joe's Crab shack.
I love the community that has become my family. I love the small town vibe. When tragedy strikes, this town comes together. What i do not like is how big the town is getting. Places where we once hiked are now being taken over by "cookie-cutter" homes. Traffic has become outrageous and stores packed. Do I still love this town? Yes I do! I believe and trust in the ones running the show that they know what they are doing.
