Things to do in Prescott

Originally opened in 1877 along the town’s Whiskey Row, this saloon once served as a hub for men looking for work, an election meeting point, and mineral transactions.

As a 1900 fire engulfed the saloons and brothels of Prescott (Arizona’s Whisky Row), patrons carried their bottles, glasses, and the monumental 24-foot-long oak bar out of the Palace Saloon and set it across the street in Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza to create a makeshift bar.

Snag self-guided walking-tour info for the city's historic places. Be sure to swing by Whiskey Row, the original downtown business district.

Tip a few of the award-winning microbrews.

Some 450 miles of hiking trails snake through the pristine Prescott National Forest. If you choose the Granite Mountain Trail, a five-mile round-trip hike that brings you to a dramatic peak, you might be rewarded with close-up views of peregrine falcons that nest in the cliffs.

The museum is dedicated to Central Arizona pioneer history and Native American artifacts.

The museum holds a collection of artifacts, baskets, and pottery from Prescott-area tribes, as well as a Hopi katsina collection, all displayed in a 1935 building that resembles a Hopi pueblo.
