Just 90 miles north of the Valley is Arizona’s “Christmas City”, Prescott. Start a family tradition by visiting the World’s Largest Gingerbread Village at the Prescott Resort and Conference Center, through January 1st. Make sure to visit the infamous Whiskey Row, the vibrant center of the downtown square with old western saloons and art shops.
Learn about the history of Central Arizona and beyond at the Sharlot Hall Museum. It has seven historic buildings including the first Territorial Governor’s residence, along with gardens and fascinating exhibits. No visit to Prescott is complete until you walk around the historical town square at night, with holiday lights and entertainment nightly. Whether you visit local art galleries or hike the high-country pine forests, Prescott will become one of your must-dos around the holidays!
