Located in the mountains of north central Arizona the City borders the Prescott National Forest to the south and west. Dubbed “Everybody’s Hometown,” Prescott is home to the downtown Courthouse Plaza, famous Whiskey Row, World's Oldest Rodeo, Prescott Fine Arts Association, Sharlot Hall Museum, Phippen Art Museum, Folk Arts Fair, Frontier Days, and Territorial Days. It has been officially designated as “Arizona’s Christmas City” by the State of Arizona.
The Courthouse Plaza, located in the center of the downtown and framed by towering elms, is the focal point for myriad activities, including crafts fairs, antique shows and art shows. The plaza and Yavapai County Courthouse are well-known throughout Arizona as symbolizing the quintessential mid-western downtown square. Recreational opportunities abound in central Yavapai County.

Antelope Hills Golf Courses is an upscale, Championship 36 hole municipal facility, complete with a natural grass driving range. The South Course is a links style course designed by Gary Panks. It is fairly wide-open, has generous mounding along the fairways and around the large undulating greens and presents a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and granite rock formations.
The North Course is a traditional layout designed by Lawrence Hughes. The North Course offers tight fairways lined with 50-foot elm trees and small, fast greens. Both courses have bluegrass fairways and roughs with bentgrass greens. Grass is dormant from approximately December 1 through April 1.
Antelope Hills hosts major events include the Arizona Golf Associations' sponsored Northern Arizona Amateur, State Father/Son and Smoki Events.
