I fell in love with the historic downtown of Prescott. Sitting in the park, dog walking and families enjoying a bit of supper in the park. Enjoy, a ice cream cone talking to the locals.

I loved walking around the area by the courthouse. I loved all the little shops and the slower pace. Unlike Phoenix and of course the weather.

Love the downtown area with all its western and art shops. The Palace is a great place to eat but also has a lot of history. Whiskey Row will keep you busy for a bit. And across the street is the Courthouse.

The history in Prescott is fascinating. Set in a lovely courthouse square reminiscent of midwest America, and surrounded by Victorian houses and businesses.

Lots of bars and restaurants. A few fun shops but mostly western and Indian art and artifacts. If you’re not into that there isn’t much of interest in the downtown area. A few small museums. Outdoor activities are the main attractions of Prescott and the...More
