    Sharlot Hall museum tells the story of Prescott and its historic culture in so many interesting ways. There are 10 buildings and beautiful grounds to explore. Many of the buildings had docents who were so knowledgeable and friendly. Learning from them was a highlight of my visit!! Highly recommend!!

    Fun and interesting area to walk around it. Enjoyed info about the water tower - and liked the fact that there's a splash pad for kids.

    Prescott is a charming town with lots to do and see for the outdoor adventurers to the Wild West historians plus those who love an artsy influence.

    We enjoyed many hikes, but enjoyed Whiskey Town and the reading about this history and culture. It is definitely a must see… take your time and enjoy the shops, restaurants, and parks. Make sure you stop at The Palace for a drink and a wonderful meal.

    There are a lot of events happening around Whiskey Row and many fine local rentals. We recommend Historic District - COZY 2 Bedroom Farmhouse in Prescott AZ through Air B n B . This lovely Farmhouse is just a few blocks down from Whiskey Row.

    There is also a wonderful Italian place called Rosa’s Pizzeria!

    Temperature was about 15 degrees cooler than Phoenix. The nights were down in the 60s. The campsites are clean and level. The fire pit worked great. It is an easy walk down to the lake. The campsites are set in a beautiful pine forest.

    Nice small zoo with a variety of mostly local wildlife. Looks like it gets a lot of love from local school and day camp kids. It was a hot day when we went but we still saw most of the animals. Tarantula Grotto, snake shed, and tortoises were highlights.

    Excellent collection of native artifacts. Interesting items at gift shop. Worth a good look around if you are in the area.

    One of our highlights of our entire stay in Prescott, was renting a fat tire e-bike from Prescott e-bike and doing the Peavine trail. The scenery was stunning and the service superb. I recommend the 2 hour tour.

    Stopped by at the recommendation of a friend. Not a big fan of western art but this little museum was worth the stop. Not just kachinas...had a short term photography exhibit which was very interesting. The permanent exhibits taught me things I didn't know. Well worth the stop.

    We got lucky and hiked the Thumb Butte area the day before they closed Prescott & Coconino National Forests due to fire danger. They were evicting campers & hikers, and cancelling future camping reservations. Be sure to check before you go.

    However, after a long morning hike we could see why -- the ground is cracked and dry, the forest is brown. Prescott desperately needs rain.

    Once it reopens, its worth a visit if you like to hike. Lots of trails and unless you insist on doing one of the super popular ones, you won't see many people.

    NOTE: There is a $5 day pass fee collected in the parking lots. Be prepared with correct change and a pencil to write with; you must leave your receipt on your dashboard.

    Fantastic hike with great views all the way up and down. Left hand side of trail is paved to the top but is steeper than the non paved path to the right. Side trail near the top is worth it for the fantastic view of Prescott and the surrounding area.
