Prescott

Whether you love hiking through large stands of ponderosa pines or appreciate historic places, Prescott offers things to do and places to see for everyone. Mild seasons make it an appealing destination year-round.

Prescott is the perfect place for a historic home tour or bed & breakfast getaway.

A mile-high city, Prescott is nestled in the Ponderosa Pines of Prescott National Forest. Fill your lungs with that amazing pine scent as you enjoy Prescott’s natural surroundings, including more than 400 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trails.

Are you a history buff? With a classic downtown brimming with Victorian homes, turn-of-the-century saloons along Whiskey Row, and other historic settings, you’ll find plenty of Western history in Prescott – much of it dating back to the days of Wyatt Earp. You’ll appreciate the character of the more than 700 homes and businesses listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Downtown’s majestic granite courthouse is set among green lawns and American elm trees that reflect the Midwestern and New England background of Prescott’s early pioneers, making it a destination known for True West. Real Adventure.

Prescott also holds four of Arizona’s most prized museums and is loaded with art galleries, antique shops, local eateries, and golfing. For a day on the water, visit one of the city’s four beautiful small lakes, perfect for boating, fishing, and nature watching.
