Review of Prescott, Arizona

Star Rating - 4/25/2019
My wife and I have lived here now for almost 15 years. We moved from Scottsdale (Phoenix area) and have never looked back. Here's why Prescott is so good: Mild four seasons; easy access (1.5-2 hours) to a major metropolitan area (Phoenix) by freeway all the way; friendly people; decent enough shopping and restaurants and not expensive; conservative (generally) populace; no nonsense approach to crime and, therefore, there is little of it; laid back attitude; most people here don't care too much about what is going on politically in DC nor have any fear of unrest. Suffice it to say, this is a great place to live and do your thing; enjoy life the way you want to; without anyone questioning you.

Does Prescott suffer the same problems resultant from the influx of illegal aliens as Phoenix and Tucson do?
