Whether you enjoy a small town feeling of our community or you’re an outdoor type of person, you must consider visiting Prescott Arizona. Here are the things to do when visiting Prescott:

Lynx_Lake_Arizona Things-to-Do

  • Lynx Lake

This wonderful location provides excellent camping, fishing, hiking, and boating. Northshore access has boat rentals, restaurant, grills and picnic tables. Southshore access point has picnic tables, boat ramp, restrooms, and grills. The two-mile Lakeshore Trail is a simple walk for about anyone. Over half of this is asphalt, which makes it suitable for wheelchairs and strollers, yet there are some hilly bits. Nearby are the hiking trails, Salida Gulch trailhead, and Lynx Creek Ruin archaeological site. Lynx and Hilltop campgrounds are adjacent to the lake. The lake contains crappie and largemouth bass. Only the boats with an electric motor are allowed.

  • Courthouse Plaza

Downtown Prescott AZ or ‘the square’ hosts all types of outdoor events throughout the year, from concerts to art shows to Christmas lighting. The famous Whiskey Row is across the street and restaurants, boutiques, shops, and galleries have sprung up. Yavapai Courthouse at the plaza’s center was named as one of the 2008 Ten Great Public Spaces by American Planning Association. The above image was taken during the holidays and Prescott is known for being ‘the Christmas town’ in many circles. However, it doesn’t matter what time of year the downtown area is always beautiful and worth visiting.

sharlot-hall-museum Things-to-Do

  • Sharlot Hall Museum

For those who don’t know, Sharlot Hall was a female frontier Prescottonian and was appointed territorial historian in the year 1909, which makes her the first ever female public official in the territory of Arizona. She established the museum in the year 1928. The museum is a pioneer village that centers on the Governor’s Mansion that was constructed in the year 1864. The buildings open to the visitors include Fremont House, Ranch House, School House, and John Charles Fremont. Sharlot Hall Building also houses exhibits on ranching, mining, and firefighting during the territorial days and Yavapai Prescott Indian Tribe’s cultural history. Sharlot Hall is great for anyone who wants to learn about Prescott’s history and definitely worth putting on your schedule as something to-do locally.

watson-lake Things-to-Do

  • Watson Lake

It’s beautifully located in the rocky wonderland of Granite Dells in Prescott. The private company rents the kayaks and canoes right on the lake and bring your boat. Lake isn’t stocked, yet contains warm water species. Fish species in this lake such are carp, catfish, sunfish, catfish, and largemouth bass. There’s no store at the lake, so you need to bring your own supplies. Feel free to explore some of the trails that lead from Watson Lake through the Granite Dells with man mad bridges and painted ‘dots’ to lead your way. My favorite trail leads you to other side of the lake’s dam where you can often see a small family of ducks swimming by.

Phippen-Museum-115 Things-to-Do

  • Phippen Museum

It’s a small gallery showcase and a small museum that showcases George Phippen’s work and some known Western artists including John Coleman and Bill Nebeker with everything from pencil drawings and watercolors to bronzes, oils, and acrylics. The first thing that you need to see when you walk in at the door is a replica of the studio of George Phippen. The pencil sketch on the blue paper depicts a mule train, which stands on the easel in the front and the placards give details about the studio of Phippen and his exceptional techniques. To make a perfect work environment, Phippen created his log cabin studio with a big skylight to illuminate easel.

Winter-Goldwater-Lake Things-to-Do

  • Goldwater Lake

It’s famous with kayakers and canoeists. The city runs it as a day-use park with the volleyball net, playground, big ramada, horseshoes pit, and picnic tables. More often than not, it is the place ideal for family reunions. The above image was taken in the winter. However, this lake is beautiful year round and a top choice for taking the family on a picnic.
