We found Prescott to be a bit of a boring town overall, but there are some pretty, historic buildings. The park square with statues, a courthouse, and plaques recounting the history of the area is pleasant. Eat at one of the old pubs, such as Palace Saloon (the food is not that good but the atmosphere is wild west), along Whiskey Row- some are said to be haunted! Whiskey Row is a line of historic buildings along Montezuma Street, between Gurley and Goodwin Streets. Here you can also find some touristy stores selling Indian items such as baskets, pottery, beadwork, and kachina dolls.
After lunch, take a drive along the streets filled with gorgeous Victorian homes.
Far more exciting than Prescott town and something you should absolutely not miss while you're so nearby are the Granite Dells, otherworldly geological formations in the craziest Dr Suess-like shapes, on a lake setting.
From Phoenix, take Highway 17 North, then Highway AZ-69 to Prescott. Next, take Highway 89 South and you will be on Gurley Street. Follow it until you reach Montezuma Street and look for a parking along the road.
