Summer Activities in Prescott

Summer Activities in Prescott

Prescott is an ideal summer playground for those who love the outdoors and enjoy a wide choice of hometown activities. There is an abundance of riches when it comes to outdoor activities and the weather could not be more perfect in summer. That is why so many people build their summer homes here. No matter what your hobby or interests, no matter your age or that of your family and guests, Prescott has what you are looking for.

Prescott Weather Is Great All Year

Prescott is wonderful year-round since there are four lovely, temperate seasons, but summer is a truly special time here. Summer days stay between 70 and 90 degrees for the majority of the summer, but even those days above 90 degrees feel very comfortable. In fact, many of our summer nights are “light sweater” weather, especially after a monsoon rain. The sun shines 277 days of the year, but never brighter than in the summer. Our weather makes us a perfect spot for all kinds of hobbies, activities, and socializing, but that isn’t all. Prescott has our charming and thriving downtown, fascinating events, and interesting day trips within easy reach.

Our residents, whether summer visitors, retirees or year-round inhabitants find life here both relaxing and rejuvenating. As custom builders, we intimately know all the perfect neighborhoods for special interests. Whether your family is looking for a golfing-focused, equestrian-focused, age differentiated, super social, or more private development, we can help. The amazing lure of our wonderful environment means we have almost anything you could be looking for.

Active and vibrant retirees love Prescott, families love Prescott, summer visitors love having a second mountain home here, and every type of family can feel at home living here full-time or part-time.
