The old homes in the area have been beautifully redone and really make this town a pretty place. The downtown is ok if you like a lot of Knick knack shoppes.

This town square features the historic courthouse building and is host to frequent arts and crafts fairs. Some nice shops are on the north side and up Cortez Street. Whiskey Row, home to saloons and shops, is on the west side.

The courthouse square has drawn us several times to Prescott. This trip included the 4th of July Parade which circles the square, Whiskey Row (always worth a visit), and good eating places on 3 sides of the square. Our next visit will be in December...More

Such a cute little town! Square in the middle of the town, with courthouse and grassy area with benches. All around the square are restaurants, bars and stores. Great little shopping area with some unique stores.

I would doubt you could make the same kind of CA money in Prescott. There seem to be sufficient tow services here. You’d have to do more research beyond my resources.

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.
