Default Question about Northern Arizona cities

I might be moving to Northern Arizona for a job after the new year. My territory would be Flagstaff, Prescott, Sedona and surrounding cities. What kind of drive time am I looking at between those three cities? Being 25 and single, which of the three would be best to live in?

Prescott to Sedona - 45 minutes.
Prescott to Flagstaff - 90 minutes.
Sedona to Flagstaff - 50 minutes.

Sedona is the nicest if you can afford it. Otherwise, Prescott is the place to be. Flagstaff is too cold in my opinion.

Thanks for the input. I don't mind the cold. I am more concerned of being around people closer to my age. With NAU being in Flagstaff, I figured there would be more young people in Flagstaff. Is there anything going on in Prescott or Sedona for a 25 year old? I have heard that those cities are retirement communities. What do you think?

The best of the three for a young person (who could care less about a winter season) is absolutely, positively, beyond a shadow of doubt - Flagstaff. You'll probably need to split rent with someone else. Buying in any of the three towns you mentioned is cost prohibitive for anyone, especially for a young person unless you've got a goldmine or a sugar daddy.

You seem to paint with a very broad bush. Please tell us how you came to the conclusion that Prescott is very racist?

That guy is obviously a moron. I actuallly need to know how it would be for a 25 year old to live in Prescott. I think most of my business would be handled there so living in Flagstaff would be too hard. Is there any night life, or anything close? What activities are there in Prescott? ie outdoors etc...

Prescott does have three small colleges in town, so there will be a young adult contingency. Can't comment on night life, but there are a number of hiking trails, popular to hike Thumb Butte, along with a number of bike trails....couple of small lakes for kayaking or fishing. The city has a good recreational programs for Basketball, Volleyball, Softball, etc.....

Flagstaff is the best for young folks. While beautiful, Sedona would be a terrible place for a single young person.
