The time to visit is summer--after Memorial Day. There are events on the courthouse plaza almost every night and its all free. There are restaurants and shops around the square and lots of people walking around. Its a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.

So many visitors have driven to the downtown area and immediately decided to call Prescott "home". It IS everyone's hometown. It reminds folks of their roots in the Midwest. There is always something going on in the Courthouse Square. Dancing, craft shows, concerts, Acker's Christmas festival (with different entertainment in all the stores) surrounding the Plaza. "Whiskey Row" and many... More

The heart and soul of the city of Prescott (pronounced: Preskit) Surrounded by great restaurants, bars and brew pubs, wonderful little shops with everything from Clothes, hats, jewelry, antiques and art galleries. In the summer months there is free entertainment on the square (bring your camp chairs) and enjoy music, cowboy poets and much more. Year round the square hosts... More

Downtown Prescott is wonderful to visit. You can walk around, browsing in shops, eating in restaurants, having a snack or cold drink, picnic near the Court House, and just spend a wonderful afternoon in a beautiful area. One other thing I forgot to mention, you will visit the historic and famous Whiskey Row. This is not to be missed!

The Visitor's Center offers free tours of historic Prescott. I'm local and loved it, as do all my out-of-town visitors. Even if you don't do the tour, the historic area is interesting. Palace Saloon, Vandome Hotel (haunted?), St. Micheal's (oldest elevator west of the Mississippi), Hasyampa Hotel (love the ceilings).
