It’s one of the top activities in the area. Once you’re done, take a look around Whiskey Row and Prescott Historic Downtown.
You’ll want to check out nearby Prescott. What’s 16 miles when you have a set of wheels? The drive itself is half the fun! Whiskey Row, Watson Lake and Prescott Historic Downtown alone justify the drive out here. Locals are also likely to point you in the direction of Jerome, 40 miles away. If you can only find time for one attraction here, make sure it’s Verde Canyon Railroad. (But we’re also huge fans of Historic Old Town Cottonwood and Jerome State Historic Park.)
