Arriving at the Hassayampa Inn on Gurley Street visitors are immediately struck by the charm of downtown Prescott and the bustling vitality of the square and shops around Whiskey Row. But there’s more to this town than meets the eye. Despite its hundreds of Victorian buildings on the National Historic Register, Prescott is also home to three colleges and a growing number of artists who inject a fun, youthful vibe to many community events and neighborhoods.

A mile above sea level and surrounded by mountains, Prescott enjoys mild temperatures year round, with sunny midwinter days in the 50s and summer nights that cool down to the 60s. The tree-lined streets, old homes, lakes and mountains, and a strong commitment to celebration and fun make it a favorite place to retire, start a business, raise a family, and of course, to visit.
