WE HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU
IN “EVERYBODY’S HOMETOWN”.

PRESCOTT AREA.

The Quad Cities of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey-Humboldt nestle comfortably in Central Arizona’s High Desert at elevations of 5,000 to 7,000 feet above sea level. The moderate four-season climate produces about 277 days of sunshine each year. No matter the time of year, temperatures hover approximately 10 degrees cooler than Southern Arizona locations. It’s no secret that many desert dwellers enjoy second homes in the Prescott area, only 90 miles from Phoenix, Scottsdale, and other Valley of the Sun locations. Ideal weather, friendly people and the lure of “True West / True Adventure” have genuinely earned Prescott its accolades as “Everybody’s Hometown,” a top US lifestyle choice.
