Downtown has an historic court house, there is something going on almost daily. The shops along historic Montezuma are a must. Enjoy a yogurt along the way.

This is a one-of-a-kind place. There is a definite sense of the Old West. There are tourists for sure, but the locals also seem to enjoy hanging out in the downtown area. Nothing is fancy, which is refreshing. There is a great variety of small stores, restaurants, art and craft stores, etc. on weekends, Courthouse Square houses a quirky market.... More

An area of olde world properties along with plenty of bars and coffee shops, ice cream parlours and the likes. The area surrounds the old courthouse and is full of historical sites.. Informative wall plaques will tell the stories of bygone days.

When in Prescott we always visit downtown area. Love to walk around and enjoy the sites. People watch and enjoy the history. Lovely area, with many choices for shopping, food and drinks.

The Court House of Prescott is a Must See destination, especially if you can come up during the summer. Thursday evenings have a "Prescott Idol"competition, but the court house plaza area is really like a Norman Rockwell picture where families, young and old come together for good entertainment. During the weekends there is usually some event going on. The whole... More

I was born in Prescott (pronounced like biscuit) the weather can't ask for better, winter's are COLD so, prepare yet enjoy all 4 seasons because they are the most spectacular if you care to live here. Downtown speaks for itself so be sure to listen.

Great area to just walk around and find excellent local shops and food place. The courthouse square had entertainment all the time and was the perfect place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning. Lots of interesting places right off the main block so well worth walking several blocks each direction.
