Imagine a town where Liberal hippies and staunch Republicans can come together in "Everybody's hometown". Between the historic landmarks and the gorgeous outdoors, Prescott has something for everyone to enjoy. There is Whiskey Row, plenty of hiking trails, Watson and Lynx Lake and more!

I love living in Prescott, Arizona. I have lived here for almost 8 years and haven't thought about leaving yet! Whether you like hiking, shopping, fishing, town activities, or anything else; you will find it here!
To be honest, when I first moved to Prescott I wasn't expecting much. I had just moved from a large city where public transportation were top notch and there was always something interesting to do. But Prescott exceeded even my best imaginations. If you're in downtown Prescott you're always within walking distance of something fun - either a cafe or a park or a mural or an art gallery or an antique store or a theater. The people are all very friendly and open to newcomers. The library offers a wide selection and job openings are abundant. There are also quite a few historical buildings and places to explore here.
