Pleasant Street Inn in Prescott, Arizona

The Prescott Area


When I lived down in the Valley, I loved coming to Prescott. Trips up here gave me the feeling of coming home and reminded me of the best of childhood memories and simpler times. I enjoyed the four seasons, the outdoors and the history. Prescott was a special place out of the big city and yet not too far away.

Now that Prescott is our home, I have discovered that there is even more to love here.  It is a privilege and my pleasure to share it with you.

In 1864 President Abraham Lincoln established Prescott as the territorial capital. Soon after, the first Federal Troops were posted at Fort Whipple to tame this wildwest town. The frontier spirit of the Prescott residents may have been best exemplified when a devastating fire destroyed the entire downtown in 1900. When the fire started, the ornately carved wooden bar at the Palace Saloon on "Whiskey Row" was carried across the street to the Courthouse where drinks were served to the firemen. History lives on in Prescott and it's obvious to anyone who's interested. Be sure to visit the Sharlott Hall Museum for a fascinating look at our old west heritage.

In addition to the Sharlott Hall Museum, we are also proud of the Phippen Museum (art of the American west), the Smoki Museum (American Indian art and culture), Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary (rescue) and Highland Center for Natural History (in Prescott National Forest).

Outdoors

With 1600 acres of parks and 450 miles of trails in Prescott National Forest, Prescott offers year round, hiking, biking, birdwatching, and boating and fishing at six lakes. Golfing enthusiasts can choose from Stoneridge, Antelope Hills and Prescott Country Club which boast some of Arizona's most beautiful, affordable, state-of-the-art year round public golf courses.

Courthouse Plaza

The old (and still active) courthouse is the heart and soul of Prescott. The park-like setting that surrounds it is flanked by galleries, unique boutiques, shops, restaurants and historic "Whiskey Row." Our downtown weekend festivals run from May through December, but to experience the true joy of living in Prescott, come midweek during the summer to enjoy the nightly concerts and dances on the Courthouse Plaza lawn.

Restaurants

Prescott has many wonderful casual dining restaurants and most do not take reservations; however, at most of the fine dining (special experience) establishments it may be better to have a reservation before you arrive. I can help you with reservations and make recommendations according to what type of food you are in the mood for.  My favorite restaurants where reservations are recommended are: Prescott Station, Murphy's, El Gato Azul (Spanish & Mediterranean), Peacock Dining Room (at the Hassayampa Inn), and Esoji (Japanese).
