History Flows to Prescott Present
Rarely does a community offer such rich history with roots that date back to the authentic Wild West.
Here, Fort Whipple, mining, railroad and western trade formed Prescott’s foundation, while Doc Holliday and other larger-than-life characters left their mark at Whiskey Row saloons. It’s where the World’s Oldest Rodeo, and Arizona’s oldest restaurant and bar can still be found.
Witness the preserved past up close at popular attractions and landmarks such as Whiskey Row at Courthouse Square, or Hotel Vendome, find your own piece of history with an antique from Prescott Museum and Trading Company, or walk in the footsteps of ancient Yavapai tribes who told their tales through petroglyphs along popular trails winding through protected land.
The coveted area of Williamson Valley links Prescott, Chino Valley, Prescott Valley and Dewey-Humbolt and is a natural wonderland of beautiful mountain ranges, pristine lakes, rivers and creeks, and spacious desert terrain. It’s also a hub for activities and historical attractions that keeps over 100,000 Quad Cities residents entertained and engaged year-round.
Prescott offers the feel of a small Arizona town, yet it’s close enough to many main attractions, making it the “right-sized city” for relaxation and popular recreation. While you can enjoy privacy among wide open spaces and views that span for miles, you’re also within a 15-30-minute drive from important conveniences—groceries, two major hospitals including a state-of-the art Veterans hospital, doctors and dentists, pharmacies, gas stations, restaurants, museums, theaters and more.
