The Prescott Area is a diverse area that offers a variety of housing options. You will often hear the Prescott Area referred to as the Quad-Cities. But what are the Prescott Quad-Cities?
Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and Dewey-Humboldt comprise the Quad-Cities. The Quad-Cities in northern Arizona has approximately 105,000 people. Here is a little information on each town in the Prescott Quad City area.
Chino Valley, Arizona
Chino Valley, Arizona, offers a rural lifestyle with shopping, dining, and recreation. Approximately 10,000 people live in the 63-square-mile town of Chino Valley. Chino is conveniently located 35 miles south of Interstate 40 and the town of Ash Fork, and 15 miles from Prescott and Prescott Valley, making commuting a breeze. Families can enjoy ball fields, skate parks, and horseback riding trails. The town has four schools operated by the Town of Chino Valley: Del Rio Elementary, Territorial Elementary, Heritage Middle School, and Chino Valley High School.
Dewey-Humboldt, Arizona, is known as “Arizona’s Country Town .”It is a rural area with a spread-out feel. With just under 4,000 people, residents enjoy the small-town feel but have shopping, dining, and entertainment only a few miles away in Prescott Valley. The Prescott Country Club and Golf Course, the 55+ Villages at Lynx Creek, and the Quailwood subdivision are popular housing communities in Dewey-Humboldt. They offer a perfect setting for retirement or a quiet place to raise a family.
Prescott, Arizona, is dubbed as “Everyone’s Hometown.” Prescott has a perfect climate with four distinct but gentle seasons. It is located in the mountains of north-central Arizona in Yavapai County, surrounded by National Forest, and at a mile-high elevation.
Prescott’s charming downtown centers on an old-fashioned town square with a historic courthouse, but what surrounds it is anything but old-fashioned. Upscale shops and restaurants, art and antiques, and just about everything in between make Prescott’s historic downtown the place to be.
Prescott is an excellent place for an active lifestyle, too. You can kayak at Watson Lake, hike, bike, ride horses or quads in the National Forest, or play one of our many signature golf courses. Although Prescott consistently ranks as one of the best places to retire, there are plenty of activities for all ages. We’re a very dog-friendly community with a very vibrant downtown nightlife and fabulous shopping with boutiques, antique shops, artisans, and more.
Prescott Valley, Arizona
Prescott Valley, Arizona, is a thriving town just a few minutes east of historic Prescott. Prescott Valley was the seventh fastest-growing place among all cities and towns in Arizona between 1990 and 2000 and has approximately 45,000 people calling it home. Located at 5,000 feet, many retirees live in Prescott Valley due to the relatively inexpensive housing and the mild climate. Prescott Valley has a large retail center, an indoor Event Center, and Yavapai Regional Medical Center Hospital. The mild climate, convenient location of 85 miles north of Phoenix, and surrounding lakes, fishing, and hiking trails make Prescott Valley attractive for families and retirees.
