Northern Arizona is a wonderful place to spend time year-round, but there’s really no better time to experience it than fall. Fall brings cooler temperatures and vibrant colors that you simply can’t enjoy further south. Fall also presents the perfect opportunity to experience everything Northern Arizona has to offer, from sightseeing hikes to art festivals and train rides. Whether you’re already a resident or just a visitor, here are five ways to enjoy fall in Northern Arizona.
In the high chaparral, just minutes northwest of downtown Prescott, you’ll find a thriving community that offers you the best of southwest living. Dorn Homes at Talking Rock Ranch offers luxury living and the privacy of your own personal retreat. With home sites nestled alongside the Jay Morrish Championship golf course nearby, you can enjoy a resort lifestyle starting in the mid $400s.
When you picture living in Prescott you probably imagine a quaint Victorian home perched on a hillside. You see yourself rising with the sun for a morning walk through a community full of friends and neighbors. The sunlight sparkles off the water of a nearby lake and across the granite hills that define Prescott.
Individuals planning their retirement often make the mistake of focusing on only two points on their journeys. The first is the starting point: today. Do I have enough money to retire? How much longer do I need to keep working?
You may recall our recent post from March titled Small Town, Big Tastes: Downtown. Well, as part of our ongoing efforts to enlighten potential homebuyers about everything Prescott has to offer, we’d like to offer the latest installment in Small Town, Big Tastes: Microbreweries.
One of the most common concerns expressed by homebuyers that are interested in moving to Arizona from out of state is the availability of water.

The list is usually made up of things like proximity to work, the quality of the school systems, access to shopping and entertainment, and as we discussed in our interview with Yavapai Regional Medical Center, access to quality healthcare.

Our Mission Statement, “Enhancing the lives of all those we touch,” is the driving force behind everything Dorn Homes does. It also means that we have a responsibility to be more than just a homebuilder. It means we have a responsibility to be a community builder. In that spirit, we have reached out to Kenneth Boush with Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC), a not-for-profit healthcare provider, to discuss the role they take in growing and sustaining the community.
The reasons homebuyers decide to move to a small town from a large city are as varied and individual as the homebuyers themselves. Typically, people focus on the accessibility of the outdoors, the sense of community, and the people. But they often resign themselves to the idea that they’ll have to make sacrifices in the variety that living in a big city can bring to life. Especially when it comes to food. Fortunately, in Prescott at least, that’s simply not the case.
Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, if you have pets you understand just how big of a role they play in our lives. Our four-legged friends (or sometimes winged or scaled) spend more time with us than even our best human friends. That’s why it’s so important to show them the love and affection that they show us every day. And, fortunately for us, Prescott is one of the pet-friendliest cities in Arizona.
