We were in town during the time in which they had the holiday lights around the Courthouse. It was beautiful. The shops are interesting and we always find things that we need to buy. Definitely a gem to visit.

I would doubt you could make the same kind of CA money in Prescott. There seem to be sufficient tow services here. You’d have to do more research beyond my resources.
