Prescott is known as one of the Top 5 Western Towns in the United States. Legendary figures like Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp (who was a lawman here) and Doc Holliday lived Prescott for a portion of their lives here. Today, you can still immerse yourself in western history when you visit Whiskey Row's saloons in Downtown Prescott. Museums like the Sharlot Hall Museum and Phillen Museum and the Fort Whipple Museum share art, sculptures, and weapons from the early days. Guests can visit Arizona Territory’s first governor’s residence, a log cabin restored to its original look. Prescott Frontier Days is host to the World's Oldest Rodeo keeping alive the tradition of Prescott’s first rodeo that took place in 1888.
When you visit Prescott, you'll have the opportunity to explore Prescott National Forest on horseback, attend a cowboy cookout with live cowboy entertainment, stay at a dude ranch, pan for gold, and many other western experiences make the Old West so special in American history.
