Once Arizona's capitol, Prescott is rich in history and charm.  Begin your day by wandering around the courthouse plaza, and enjoying the art and informative plaques.  From there, you can stroll down historic Whiskey Row and enjoy lunch or drinks at one of Prescott's old saloons or restaurants.  We lunched at the Palace Saloon, "the oldest frontier bar in Arizona."   

After lunch is a good time to visit Sharlot Hall Museum.  This museum was founded by in 1928 by Sharlot Hall, a pioneer, poet, and historian.  Today is contains several of Prescott's old buildings and a treasure trove of information about life in the early pioneer days of Arizona.  You can end your day by browsing some of the local shops and art galleries.  You can share icecream or other delicious treats from a local shop.  If you want to see Prescott's nightlife, stay for dinner and drinks. 

Prescott is about 100 miles north of Phoenix.  Plan 1 1/2 hours for the drive.  Temperatures are cooler than Phoenix,  making Prescott a great summer day trip.  If you have a long day, spend the morning in Yarnell, AZ and then follow the scenic Route 89 to Prescott for the afternoon and evening.

Another Date Idea

  • Take me out to the ball game! Every February and March, the Cactus League comes to Phoenix for training and Exhibition games. So grab some peanuts and Cracker Jacks and plan a date to a spring training game.
