About Chino Valley, AZ:
Situated just northwest of Prescott and surrounded by high, sandy-colored Chino Gama Grasses and rolling hills, Chino Valley is a place where people come to escape the big-city lifestyle and experience outdoor adventure, amazing restaurants, our local micro-brewery, vineyard and more. From anywhere in Chino Valley, you can look up at the sky at night and see brilliant constellations and bright stars and with so much wide open space, it’s not unusual to see locals riding out on horseback and off-roading down Perkinsville to enjoy and explore all that the high desert has to offer. Many new residents and visitors find that they ask themselves, “Can this place be real?”
Once the Territorial Capital of Arizona, this former temporary settlement became the start of a prosperous community full of ranchers and farmers. These founding roots remain embedded in the culture and heritage of Chino Valley to this day.
This quiet, slow-paced community is a place where people learn how and love to relax. Surrounding hiking trails, swimming holes, and secret spots that only locals know offer endless opportunities for any outdoor enthusiast. And you can’t talk about Chino Valley without mentioning the water – don’t forget your 5-gallon water jug during your next visit to fill up with the freshest Arizona water you have ever tasted!
