We quite frequently visit Prescott for a car show that blocks 3 sides around the courtyard...with cars! Fun time but I like wandering into the art galleries which are numerous as well as some great places to eat. It's very busy when we go as the show is 150 cars...but Prescott has a group of volunteers that roam on the... More

Great area to stroll, get a bite to eat, and relax under the trees in the courtyard. If you love to people watch, meet new friends, or enjoy local entertainment, this is a great place for you. We were surprised to find a Corvette car show on Saturday.

Downtown historic area is very small Courthouse square is impressive. We visited one wet morning so did visit any of the places on Whiskey Row. On street Parking is not a problem If you are visiting Prescott it's worth a visit.

It's like being in an old fashioned Western. Souvenir stores and an artist coop gallery. Touristy but fun. We were lucky to have been there when the State Fair was in town and we went to the rodeo.

Was not disappointed with the Downtown historic area of Prescott. The museums and Whiskey Row are not to be missed. Each bar has an amazing story behind it as well as awesome deals and excellent selection on most draft and bottled beers.

Courthouse square is full of life all the time. Rarely a crowd, unless it's a holiday and then it's great down-home peeps.

It is a wonderful place for a family picnic, or sharing lunch from one of the nearby restaurants with friends. Surrounding the... More
