Destination guide

The heart of Arizona in Prescott Valley

It's the rugged traverses and canyons, the ponderosa pine forests and the toppling hoodoos of central Arizona that forge the breathtaking backdrop to Prescott Valley. A sleepy town that still echoes with the nostalgia of its old ranching days, it's real America; earthy and dust-blown. Prescott Valley vacation rentals offer a stepping stone to the Prescott National Forest, endless miles of hiking trails, and more, coming in the form of cozy cabins with views over the woodlands, or sumptuous country mansions with hot tubs and sprawling gardens.

Things to do

Between the ponderosa pines in Prescott Valley

Around 1.25 million acres of prime American national park awaits just to the west of downtown Prescott Valley. Named the Prescott National Forest, the reserve is certainly the top attraction here, offering a patchwork of scrub-dressed hills, rugged granite mountains, juniper forests, and wooded mesas, all with campsites and marked hiking by the bucket load. Even more landscapes to take the breath away loom up to the east. You could conquer the Coconino National Forest and the peaks of San Francisco, which often come doused in snow by winter. Or, head to the Tonto National Forest for cacti blooms and mountain lakes.

Activities

Adventure awaits in Prescott Valley

It's just a hop, skip, and a jump from the doorstep of Prescott Valley vacation rentals to three of Arizona's greatest wildernesses. That means this town is all about getting out and about. Campsites pepper the canyon tops to the west; horses are saddled up for riders in the historic ranches to the east; gorge walkers aim to conquer the rugged topography of Tonto, and sunflowers and aster bloom in the springtime. You'll certainly need to remember to bring the outdoors gear and walking boots for this one…

Weather

Powder and pretty summers in Prescott Valley

Unless you're searching for Prescott Valley vacation rentals as an alternative base for the Arizona Snowbowl and the ski resorts of Flagstaff, it's probably best to book your trip here during the summer. Be sure to opt for the later months of September and October if you want to enjoy the best scenery and weather, which is when the crowds of August have gone home and the forests of the Arizonan highlands begin to change colors. You could also be in with lower accommodation rates at that time of year.

Natural features

Hitting the Arizona highlands in Prescott Valley

Carving and cutting their way through the dusty heartlands of Arizona, it's the rugged canyons of the Coconino National Forest and the Tonto National Forest that crowd Prescott Valley to the east. This land of mesas and red-hued gorges is likely to be the Wild West you imagined, not to mention a fine place to hike, bike, scale needle-shaped bluffs, ski, and spot spiky cacti. The other side of town is dominated by the Prescott National Forest, where babbling streams are trodden by cougars, and where hikers can meet black bears on the dusty trails through Woodchute and Apache Creek.
