What a nice day. The weather was nice, just a bit windy. There was a lot of Crafts to see, smelling different foods and the right amount of people. Thinking I saw more dogs in strollers than babies.But after all it is Prescott!

The epitome of small town America. Fun during the day, shopping, dining, cocktails, art fairs in the summer. Nightlife, vibrant music scene and a fantastic Christmas lights display.

Very quaint, what you expect an historic town to look like. There is concerts in the square all summer. Lots of restaurants and shops. These old buildings are charming to be in, full of history. Always has activities .

Great time! Lots to see and do in Arizona's Christmas City. The music was amazing, super food, and a fun time to connect with people you may not see often.

Beyond the history of Arizona's 1st (and 3rd) Territorial Capital, the Courthouse and Whiskey Row area (including Sharlot Hall nearby) all embody that American West image many have. All of these are easily walked to within about a 3-4 block area, so convenience is particularly...More

This is a beautiful area to bring your family or just yourself to walk around check out all of the story on the square. People are friendly, it's just a great place to lay in the grass and read a book and relax.

I agree with Robert...they expect you to pay...since you are from out-of-state and, in reality, can not come back to argue in court.
