In addition, the city offers acres of parks providing such activities as tennis, softball and golf.

The history of Prescott dates back over 135 years and the city continues to maintain its small town charm. It’s no wonder Prescott has been chosen as one of America’s most pleasant communities in which to live.

See for yourself why Fiorello La Guardia, one-time mayor of New York City, called Prescott “the most comfortable and most wonderful city in the world.”
