Prescott National Forest
We spent a delightful seven days in Las Vegas and enjoyed our time sampling the cuisine from four restaurants featured on Diners, Drive In’s and Dives in March 2016. Now, it is time to move on to explore out other interesting places.
This segment of our adventure takes us to Prescott, Arizona. In a recent survey of the best cities to retire, Prescott was voted as number two on the list. While we are waiting for the weather to warm up in northern California, Oregon and Washington, we will check out Prescott.
Prescott is a small town with a population of 39,843, according to the 2010 Census. It is located in a mountainous region in central Arizona, at an elevation of 5,368 feet, somewhat surrounded by the Prescott National Forest.
We will spend six days exploring Prescott, while camped at the White Spar Campground in the Prescott National Forest.
