Prescott Valley is such a great place to live! There are so many opportunities! There are community activities that help to involve neighbors and friends and the people are generally very friendly. The weather is fairly nice as it is quite a bit cooler than Phoenix and not too cold in the winter. With mountains and lakes in the area, you can enjoy the outdoors and breathe the fresh air.

It is a great place for one to retire, have a vacation home, raise a family, start a business, invest in real estate, or

Prescott Valley is a nice city in Arizona. The weather is what I enjoy - the summer's are not too hot, the winter can get cold, but is usually mild. My first year in Prescott Valley it snowed about 10 inches! There is a lot to do in the surrounding area - the Flagstaff Snow Bowl is about 2 hours away to the north if you enjoy snowboarding like I do. Phoenix is about 2 hours to the south with too many activities to list and Prescott Valley offers excellent hiking. There is not a lot I would change about Prescott Valley except to see my family living in this area!
I attend Arizona Northern University extended campus here and it's so nice and convenient to a quick run out between classes to Starbucks, Walmart, or Fresh Baja. Prescott Valley is located in a valley between the Mingus mountains, Bradshaw Mountains, and Prescott National Forest. There is even a view all the up to the San Francisco Mountains up in Flagstaff! Getting around Prescott Valley is easy, the traffic flows nicely with no back-ups except the occasional accident. There is a great Entertainment area of a Harkins Movie complex, restaurants, and an arcade and minituare golf all in the same complex.
