History

Most of all, you will enjoy genuine Western hospitality, heritage, tradition and an outdoor lifestyle that makes Prescott the “Best Destination in Arizona for Nature Lovers,” according to Expedia Viewfinder (August, 2017). PRESCOTT ARIZONA was first settled with the discovery of gold in Granite Creek. The City was founded in 1864. President Abraham Lincoln named Prescott the first Territorial Capital of Arizona, a distinction the City held from 1864-67 and again from 1877-1889. In 1891, Prescott became the Yavapai County Seat, and it remains so to this day. In 1888 Prescott held its first rodeo. To this day, it is known as the World’s Oldest Rodeo. In 1901, a fire leveled the infamous Whiskey Row bars, and the county courthouse.

American Ranch Rd

Notable figures from Prescott’s past include Doc Holiday and his mistress, Big Nose Kate, who frequented the Palace and other Whiskey Row establishments. Senator Barry Goldwater hailed from Prescott. His family owned a general merchandise store on Cortez Street in the downtown, and their name is still on the building. Western history is not all Prescott has to offer. Prescott is nestled in the central highlands of Arizona, at a mile-high elevation. The city is surrounded by the 1.25 million acre Prescott National Forest, and boasts five lakes, and over 450 miles of trails.

Dining

AS YOU STROLL PAST any of the more than 800 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places cited on the National Historic Register, you’ll be tempted to step in for a fast meal—or a fine dining experience. You’ll probably be pleased that of the more than 200 places to eat in the city, a majority are “hometown” owned and managed. They range from “Mom n’ Pop” eateries to sophisticated dining in elegant surroundings. You’ll be surprised at the ethnic variety available, too. Of course, you can sample locally brewed awardwinning beverages at micro breweries or wine-tasting shops. You may want to try one of the newest. It is a recently opened meadery, just up Gurley Street on the way to Sharlot Hall Museum. If you’re of such a mind, visits some local pubs and try some of the wines which come from Arizona wineries and vineyards.

center of town, looming large over a plaza ringed by century-old trees is the much photographed granite Courthouse. It’s the focal point for many festivals and events from late April through October.

A Special Place DESIGNATED AS ARIZONA’S CHRISTMAS CITY, during winter months, the area around the Courthouse is home for unequaled holiday festivities. You won't want to miss any of them. Festivities begin in late November. The first is the colorful Holiday Light Parade, where elaborate decorated floats and holiday music will have you smiling. Ultimately, you may wind up at the community bonfire, just up the street at Mile High Middle School. Then the first week of December features the colorful daytime Christmas Parade, with more than 75 entries. It involves almost everyone in town. If you’re lucky enough to be here in early December, you’ll beam when the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza lights turn the dark into a kaleidoscope of 27

Day Trips

rescott’s the perfect place from which to launch memorable day trips, especially to the nearby Verde Valley and adjacent Red Rock Country. It’s only an hour away. Among the

1010 South Main Street, Cottonwood, Arizona 86326 928-634-7593 • visitcottonwoodaz.org

favorites are the following:

Cottonwood, The Heart of Arizona Wine Country Located in the Verde Valley, Cottonwood is ideally situated between the heat of the desert and the coolers temperatures of Arizona’s high country. Old Town retains the charm of those early beginnings, and the Verde Valley Wine Trail is not to be missed!

Verde Canyon Railroad

Postcard-perfect scenery, wildlife viewing and first-class service during a leisurely four-hour train ride through the red rock Canyon area. First-class cars boast comfortable seating, complimentary appetizers and a full-service bar. Everyone has access to open-air viewing cars where photographic opportunities abound.

The Blazin’ M Ranch Western Dinner Theatre

Tucked ​along ​the banks of the scenic Verde River, this popular family destination is a great activity. It is timed perfectly after you finish your ride on the Verde Canyon Railroad. The ranch activities include ​a shooting gallery, roping lessons, Old-Time photos, a saloon, museum and unique gift shops. Top it off with a chuckwagon-style meal, followed by a live Western stage production with cowboy comedy, storytelling and award-winning musicians!

Town of Jerome

Stroll the winding switchback streets of what was once known as the “wickedest town in the West.” At one time the fourth largest town in Arizona, Jerome was a mining community founded a few years after the Civil War on the side of 5,200 foot high Cleopatra Hill. The mines are now abandoned, but Jerome thrives as a popular tourist community with dozens of unusual shops, boutiques, exhibits, museums and restaurants.
