Prescott Valley (locally called PV) is located in central Arizona at 5,100 feet elevation. PV has good access to Arizona State Route 89, SR-89A and SR-69. Only an hour or so away from Phoenix and an hour and a half from Flagstaff we are conveniently located between the desert and mountains.
We are just ten minutes away from historic Prescott, the county seat. With all it has going for it, no wonder Prescott Valley is often ranked among the top places to live in America.
One of PV’s landmarks, Glassford Hill, elevation 6,177 feet was once an active volcano between 10 and 14 million years ago. Today, it stands as an dormant volcano.
Prescott Valley's economy consists of industrial, manufacturing, retail and service businesses. Many retirees live here due to relatively inexpensive housing and the mild climate.
Prescott Valley is located within 10 minutes of the Prescott National Forest, with lakes, fishing, hiking and camping. The Entertainment District is located downtown and offers a variety of restaurants, a 6,000-seat events center, a multi-screen movie theater, and retail shops. Fain Park preserves remnants of early 20th century gold mining along Lynx Creek. Biking paths exist along some roadways in town, and a system of walking paths/trails winds through a large section of Prescott Valley.
