The Community

Prescott Valley sits at 5,100 feet, occupying a spectacular valley between the Bradshaw and Mingus Mountains. Wide open spaces and clean mountain air envelop smart growth and a commitment to positive progress. Our family-oriented community boasts a lifestyle of cultural, recreational and educational activities, a low crime rate and superior public service. Additionally we are just ten minutes away from historic Prescott, the county seat. With all it has going for it, no wonder Prescott Valley is often ranked among the top places to live in America.

We enjoy a mild year-round climate with four distinct and equally pleasant seasons. Just an hour’s drive (and at least 15 degrees cooler!) from the metropolis of Phoenix and its deserts and lakes, and a little more than an hour from Flagstaff (and at least 15 degrees warmer!) and its snow-capped mountains and ski slopes, Prescott Valley is perfectly positioned to access most any area of the State. Historic Prescott is just 10 minutes away.
