Outdoor Adventure

Prescott also has more lakes in the city than any other city in Arizona. The lakes are perfect for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and other non-motorized or small-motor activities. Swimming is not permitted in most of the lakes, but they still make great places to cool down, go for a run or bike ride, enjoy a picnic or click that perfect sunrise or sunset shot.

The Whiskey Off-Road Mountain Bike Race and Whiskey Row Marathon are tons of fun to watch or participate in,  and draw thousands of visitors to town every year.
