Yavapai County

The historic downtown shopping district of Prescott, the Red Rocks of Sedona, the Wine Trail of the Verde Valley, combined with sunny skies and mild temperatures, make Yavapai County a favorite destination for residents of Arizona and beyond. Surrounded with natural scenic beauty ranging from the Prescott National Forest to the high desert, outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and rock climbing are hugely popular. Hundreds of miles of trails wait to be explored and picturesque locales afford stunning views year-round.

Yavapai County has a rich history, and its past is maintained in various forms by local museums including Sharlot Hall Museum, the Museum of Indigenous People, and the Camp Verde Archeology Center. Art galleries and boutiques abound throughout our communities. Local theater is alive and well, and music—from bar bands to jazz quartets and chamber orchestras—is abundantly available. Recurring annual events include the Sedona International Film Festival, the Camp Verde Pecan & Wine Festival, the World’s Oldest Rodeo, and the Acker Musical Showcase. The area offers something for everyone. Many Prescott Community Events are shown here or at the Chamber website.
