Things to Do in Prescott, AZ

Are you trying to find things to do in Prescott? You'll find that Prescott is full of surprises when it comes to things to do and ways to entertain oneself. Being a mix of college students, retirees, outdoor enthusiasts and lovers of the Old West make for quite an interesting atmosphere. Having said that, here are some of the most popular things to do when you're in Prescott.

  1. Experience the Old West

  2. Go on a guided horseback ride through the hills on trails that legendary cowboys like Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earp and Virgil Earp did back in their day. Pan for gold, or go to a cowboy cookout at Blazin' M Ranch. If you are lucky enough to be here during Frontier Days, get tickets to the World's Oldest Rodeo and experience Western culture in its modern-day prime.

  3. Hit the Trails

  4. Prescott National Forest offers over 850 miles of maintained trails and eight Wilderness Areas totaling more than 104,000 acres located entirely or partially within the Prescott National Forest. Hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and rock climbing have a very integral park of Prescott's culture. There is a lifetime of trails to explore in this area, especially if you participate in multiple types of outdoor activities.

  5. Prescott Lakes

  6. Prescott has more lakes in the city than any other city in Arizona. The lakes are perfect for kayaking, standup paddle boarding, and other non-motorized or small motor activities. Swimming is not permitted in most of the lakes, but they still make great places to cool down, go for a run or enjoy a family picnic.

  7. Whiskey Row

  8. Whiskey Row is a historic section of Prescott occupied by authentic, Old West saloons established during the time of the early gold rush; a culture that drew all kinds of settlers, cowboys, prospectors, bawdy girls, gamblers, and even outlaws to the town. And though present-day Prescott is far less wild these days, it still celebrates its history with annual shoot out events on this very block.

  9. Visit a Museum

  10. Although Prescott has art museums worth visiting, the ones that are unique to Prescott are those that highlight western, Native American, and early pioneer day history and culture. Sharlot Hall Museum, Phippen Museum, & Museum of Indigenous People (previously Smoki Museum) are great places to start.
