Chris, two former workmates of mine moved there and enticed me to visit and think of retirement there.

A couple of years ago I bought a home in Prescott Valley and will be finally moving there in about four more months.

I found a lot to like about the place - lower prices on many products (but not all) and very friendly conservatives are the majority. There are a few drawbacks - you have to drive to Phoenix to buy a few things that just aren't available there - but that's just a tad over an hour away.

I don't like the ridiculously low speed limits, and hordes of little unmanned robo-cars parked in random spots that automatically hand out speeding tickets for driving four miles an hour over those excessively low limits.

And there are a few other nit-picky things that rub me the wrong way, but on the plus side I find far more to be happy with than I find objectionable. I think you'll likely find that too.

It's 'off the beaten path' - far enough that there is quite a bit of protection 'built in' to shield the place from the undesirables that wander from place to place (committing crime) along the main thoroughfares that cross the country. That alone helps make the Prescott area one of the safest to live in.
