Prescott Named Best Destination for Nature Lovers In Arizona by Expedia Featured

By John Heiney August 11, 2017 1138

Prescott is a Nature Lover’s paradise. Really. And that includes the surrounding the communities. 

Prescott has been named the Best Destination in the State of Arizona for Nature Lovers by travel website Expedia.com’s Viewfinder travel blog. The article cited our 1.25 million acres of National Forest, 16 parks, three lakes, and miles of trails.

City Manager Michael Lamar, a relatively new Prescott resident, said he agrees wholeheartedly with the Expedia ranking. “In the short time we have lived here, my family and I have enjoyed many of Prescott’s trails and parks,” he said. “We are fortunate to boast the Prescott National Forest; the one-of-a-kind Granite Dells; Willow, Watson and Goldwater lakes; and 450 miles of multi-use trails.”


Recently Expedia Viewfinder named Prescott’s downtown one of the Coolest Downtowns In North America. Prescott has received numerous rankings in the past several months including Number One Place to live in the Southwest by Sunset Magazine, and Top 13 Happiest and Healthiest Places to Live in the Nation by Time Magazine.
