Downtown is a great place to check out the bronze statues, walk your dog, see concerts, shop the booths, see parades...Prescott is fun and such a great HOME TOWN type place and the courthouse is the center of the action, across from Whiskey Row (Montezuma Street)

Such a nice place to spend the afternoon walking through the shops, having lunch, and also stopping into a few saloons. Parking might be tough but if you don't mind the walk, try for a spot on a side street.

Whiskey row was fun, stop by the Palace for a whiskey, music most nights, Nice museum too. there is a western museum on the same block be sure to go into it. Check out the Back Alley Wine Bar behind Whiskey row. They have beer, wine and cider and music all nights except Wednesday. they do close early if its a quite night.

Had several hours to pass waiting on dine time. Center square had plentiful seating and very comfortable temps. Lots of shopping. although wives thought a little pricy.

Start your time here at the Western Herítage Center- you’ll get a LOT more out of it! The FREE WHC is right on Whiskey Row at 156 N Montezuma (next to the “Bird Cage”, look for that huge sign).

The Center is only open (as of 8/21) THURS- SUN - but for tourists that’s fine. 10a -5p (Sun opens at noon. Prescott is church going folks. )

ASK FOR THE FREE Heritage Trail map &/or the History Booklet (for kids). After you look at the exhibits in the Center, then use the map/booklet to visit the plaza. IT WILL COME ALIVE! I wish I had known about this map a couple of years ago 😂😂. Answers SO many questions!

Try Born to be Wild kayaking rentals on Watson Lake. Easy process, great experience. Also, the Daily National Forest Pass allows you to visit and park at as many trails as you want. Loved the easy access to the trails.

We had quite a bit of walking around to shops, restaurants, and our hotel. Nice area with a big, open courthouse plaza, the famous Whiskey Row, and pretty victorian style houses. It is worth a walk if this is your first time to Prescott, but be ready for the difficulty of parking. Often better to park on the edges of downtown and then walk in.

One walk about isn't enough, I did it several times; the shop keepers and art gallery personnel were very pleasant and proud of their history. They got some of my money.
