“Historical Old West "Main Street"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The historic area in Prescott is wonderful but also it is for tourists and the shop owners, restaurants and bars would like to share your dough. But if you look about, browse and are selective you will not only have a wonderful time, gain some education and see some old historical pieces but probably come away with some bargains. We like to walk the center Court House Square and the sculptures are wonderful. Worth the time and effort and at night around Christmas the lighting is splendid.

“so charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

we walked around and talked to people and everyone is so friendly in Prescott. The Chamber of C is really nice and one gentleman that works there could be Bob Hope's double. :)

“A visit to the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Loved the historic small town feel. A lot of the buildings remain like they did in the past. A very nice place to visit and see.

“Plenty To Do and See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Plenty of shops and restaurants so there's something for everyone. The town is definitely a reflection of it's old west roots. If you are lucky enough to visit around the holidays, the lighting display surrounding the courthouse is breathtaking.
