Prescott is framed to the east and south by Prescott National Forest, a vast natural area that borders three other National Forests. Prescott National Forest consists of roughly 1.25 million acres. Activities in the forest include camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, hang gliding, rock climbing, bouldering, whitewater rafting, and mountain biking. Because of this impressive backyard, Prescott enjoys a large tourism industry.
In addition to the National Forest, Prescott features the 48-mile Mile-High Trail System, the Highlands Center & Heritage Park Zoo, and several historic and prehistoric locations, including a prehistoric village at Willow Lake, petroglyphs at Vista Park and the Enchanted Canyon Subdivision, and the historic Prescott Peavine Trail, constructed in 1893.
The city of Prescott has a unique Old-West flavor and history that will enchant you, so be sure to check out the Phippen Western Museum, the Rodeo Fairgrounds, and the Smoki Museum after you’ve selected your Prescott apartment for rent.
