Prescott has been a great place to raise my family. I really like Prescott’s dry, high-altitude climate, and the area has a lot to do, including mountain biking, hiking and being outside.
We love the high desert of Northern Arizona, where the climate is perfect with four mild seasons. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the sunshine and the outdoors — and the scenery is stunning.
The amazing weather, the beauty of the city and the small community are what I love about Prescott. It is a great place for us to raise our family.
I love the amazing weather we have year round in Prescott. I love the hiking trails and all of the state land to off-road on!

Our residential campus offers many onsite conveniences such as food courts, a fitness facility, swimming pool, intramural sports, full-service mail center, dry cleaning valet, and a convenient health clinic where employees can be seen for acute illnesses.
