A small, thriving city located in north-central Arizona.
The town is nestled in a scenic valley at the northern edge of the vicious Bradshaw Mountains. The pine-clad mountains above town reach heights of nearly 8,000ft, however downtown Prescott rests at 5,400ft.
Prescott’s central downtown is built around an elm-shaded, traditional courthouse plaza complete with the historic Whiskey Row.

Slang terms the locals like to distribute are PTown, Biscuit and Skit

A friendly note to visitors:
Pronunciation: 'pres-k&t, -"kät
like biscuit or triscuit.

Prescott: A charmingly tiny town with breathtaking views...and that's about it. It's fun to visit, but I would not recommend living in this veritable hell-hole. The town rolls up the sidewalks at 9 pm: after this, you can go to Denny's, Whataburger, or Wal-Mart - the only 24-hour venues in town. The mall offers limited shopping; the restaurants offer scarce variety; and if you're looking for cultural diversity, it isn't here.

The education system is appalling, at best. The administration at the high school is essentially a dictatorship run by incompetent rubes with little to no wisdom or expertise.

There is absolutely nothing to do, with the exception of sex and drugs. Thus, the high pregnancy rate and rampant meth use.
Yes, the views are lovely and when I lived there, I enjoyed hiking in the Dells. But you can't go hiking every day, and the snow is annoying rather than beautiful when the snow plows take almost all day to get to your side of town because we only have a couple snow plows.

Also, the town is quickly filling up: property rates are soaring through the roof because there isn't enough housing for all the people. Traffic has become unbearable, and Prescott drivers and inimitably horrible.

Prescott Arizona, a great place if your retired and want to do nothing all day. Moving here is also decent for punishing your children, or if you hate yourself. There's nothing to do except hikes when its not to hot in the summer, or cold in the winter. 75 percent of this town is Mormon, including almost every decent girl you meet, which are very few. Its actually shocking how few attractive girls live in this town! Growing up here you can hang out a few places including Walmart, your basement watching movies, or the square with 5 restaurant they call downtown. Drugs are popular and cheap, Living so close to the border there's a plentiful supply of heroin and weed. By the time you get to high school most people are so bored its rare to meet someone that's sober and not pregnant. I don't understand why you would move to Prescott, but it's your choice (don't do it man).
