We drove up Saturday to look at the college and decided to have lunch and shop. the town square is always enjoyable just the trees are relaxing. This town has definitely picked up in population and is very busy but the look and demeanor of downtown is very enjoyable and a great day trip or overnight outing for Phx,

Had a lovely weekend in Prescott Az. lots of hilly walking(I live in the Valley flat land) so the elevator to get to the second floor at Jersey Lillies was a huge plus. Had diner at The Palace food and service were outstanding. Lots of interesting history of the old west and lots to see and do.
