The City of Prescott has been named the number one city to retire in the US by EscapeHere.com. The article cites Prescott’s great outdoors, vibrant cultural scene, history, cool summer weather and affordable housing prices as factors.

“Once again we are proud to be recognized for our many unique qualities,” said Prescott Mayor Harry Oberg, a lifelong resident of the area. “It’s no secret to us in Prescott that the quality of life here is world-class. Our cultural and heritage amenities, variety of businesses, scenic beauty, outdoor recreation, and even air quality make Prescott a top destination to live, learn, work and play.”

This designation follows Time Magazine naming Prescott as the Top 13 Happiest and Healthiest City in the Country, and Number One Best Place to Live in the Southwest by Sunset Magazine.
