Travel & AdventureSometimes you have to get out of town.
For almost as long as people have owned cars, they’ve been driving around to view Christmas lights from the comfort of their vehicles, often with hot chocolate and cookies in hand. Once your parents treat you to this holiday tradition, you’re likely to carry it on for the rest of your life to rekindle those warm childhood holiday memories.
A day trip to the Juniper Well Ranch and nearby Barnstar Brewery is only a leisurely half-hour’s drive from Prescott, but it truly feels like a world away. The short jaunt leaves plenty of extra time for getting to know the new friends you’re sure to make.
If Goldilocks is a bluegrass and acoustic music fan, she surely would choose the annual Pickin’ in the Pines Bluegrass & Acoustic Music Festival in Flagstaff.
The Granite Dells. They’re one of the things that really define Prescott; a wild and free landscape like our city’s grandmothers found when they came here a century ago.
What will our town become if there are hundreds of homes, miles of new roads, and a huge resort in the heart of the Dells? That’s a question that keeps me up at night. It’s why I volunteer full-time for Save the Dells.

With horses once again galloping around the oval track in the northeast PV grasslands, the century-old tradition of horse racing has returned to the Prescott area after a nine-year hiatus.
Arizona Downs opened its doors on Memorial Day Weekend, with horse racing continuing there through Labor Day Weekend. If you’re looking for something unusual to do this summer, you might not realize that a trip to the track offers something for all ages. Special events and promotions are planned every weekend.
