Historic Prescott

Prescott, Arizona is  a beautiful historic town worth visiting should you find yourself in Arizona. Nestled in the Prescott National Forest this mile-high town offers visitors a variation in activities. The downtown area is complete with Victorian homes, 1900s saloons and a rich western history. The avid hiker will love Prescott because it offers over 400 miles of hiking trails, horse riding trails and mountain biking. I loved the museums, art galleries and some of the many hundred homes listed in the National Registry of Historic places. With over 700 homes in the National registry, its among the top towns on the list of old towns in the lower 48 states.

I thoroughly enjoyed touring the courthouse downtown. Built of granite and surrounded by lush green grass, it is set apart from many historic courthouses I have seen in the US.

PS: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
