WHISKEY ROW

Whiskey Row is Prescott’s – not to mention one of Arizona’s – most famous streets. In its heyday, Whiskey Row was lined with saloons that welcomed many well-known cowboys and outlaws on a regular basis. In 1900, the entire block – along with three-quarters of the town – was destroyed by fire. But within days, new structures began to rise, most of fire-proof brick, and many of those buildings are still standing. Today, Whiskey Row is the ideal place for unique shopping, dining and plenty of entertainment.

DAY TRIPS

Prescott is the perfect “hub” for those who like to explore other parts of Yavapai County. For example, the beautiful red rocks of Sedona are an hour away. Enjoy some local wines in Chino Valley, Jerome and the Verde Valley area. For more information on the Verde Valley Wine Trail, go to www.vvwinetrail.com. And, the Grand Canyon always beckons visitors! Drive up in the morning, have lunch at the Canyon and be back in Prescott by the evening.
