Prescott Named Best Value Town In the Southwest, beating out Scottsdale; Silver City, New Mexico and Los Alamos, New Mexico. 

Prescott has been named the Number One Best Value Town in the Southwest by Sunset Magazine, as part of an article about Top 20 Best Value Towns.  The article cited Prescott’s quality of life, emphasizing outdoor amenities including trails and lakes, and the Old West heritage, citing the Palace and Whiskey Row.

City Manager Michael Lamar, said he is pleased that Prescott is earning positive recognition.  “It’s easy to see why Prescott is being recognized in so many ways,” he said.  “There is so much opportunity including heritage, arts, culture, outdoor recreation, and a variety of educational opportunities.  We believe that Prescott is on the rise, and recognition like this confirms it.” 

Recently Expedia Viewfinder named Prescott’s downtown one of the Coolest Downtowns In North America, and a Top Destination for nature lovers.  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.
