Superbly located within driving distance to everything Arizona has to offer, Prescott Valley is about 90 miles from Phoenix to the south, approximately 90 miles from Flagstaff to the north, and about 28 miles from Jerome, one of the state’s famed former ‘ghost towns’. Revitalized as an artist’s colony and shopping maven’s haven, this historic copper-mining town was designated a National Historic District by the federal government in 1967. It is now home to about 450 permanent residents along with a plethora of unique shops, one-of-a-kind eateries, rustic saloons and even a winery.
Meanwhile, early-risers can make a day-trip out of a visit to the Grand Canyon, while the world-famous town of Sedona is only about 50 miles away. Known across the globe for its spectacular red-rock cliffs, Sedona is a romantic vacationer’s paradise boasting intimate bed-and-breakfasts, luxury resorts and all kinds of lodging venues in-between. Outdoors aficionados will appreciate the area’s crystal-clear trout streams, numerous hiking trails or enjoying one of the famed “jeep” tours that ruggedly wrangle their way up and down the crimson-hued cliffsides.
