Prescott Named One of the Happiest and Healthiest Cities In America by Time Magazine

The City of Prescott has been named one of the Happiest and Healthiest Cities in America, according to an article by Time Magazine published March 7. Prescott was named number 13 out of 189 cities identified by the article, and is the top-rated city in the state of Arizona.

“This is great news,” 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. For us it is things like higher education opportunities, variety of businesses, scenic beauty, outdoor recreation, and even air quality; Citizens of Prescott know that we have a great community.”

This designation follows the recent designation as the number one Best Place to Live in the southwest by Sunset Magazine.

The Time Magazine article ranked Naples, Florida number 1. Boulder, Colorado was number 10, and the only Southwest city in the top 10.
