Nearby Attractions and Amenities
Prescott, Arizona is located in Yavapai County with a city population of approximately 46,000. It is nestled within the largest pine forest in the United States, the Coconino National Forest, and is equidistant to both Phoenix and the Grand Canyon. Warmth from the desert plains sweeps to its mile high doorstep bringing four mild seasons, 300 days of sunshine, and an annual daytime average of about 70 degrees.
Prescott has a rich history as a frontier gold and silver mining town. It was a stereotypical “wild west” town with famous residents including Doc Holliday and Virgil Earp of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. The modern city is host to the self-proclaimed “World’s Oldest Rodeo”, running continuously since 1888. The rodeo, one of the most famous in the United States, draws some 35,000 tourists a year. The heart of the town beats to the pulse of the historic courthouse plaza. Located in the city’s center, the grounds have long been a gathering place for visitors and locals, socializing, and enjoying year round events. Iconic Whiskey Row borders the plaza and boasts many historic buildings, boutiques, art galleries, award winning pubs, and hotels. Also located in Prescott is Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world’s top aeronautical university, educating the next generation of astronauts, aviators, and global intelligence professionals.
Prescott recently moved into the national spotlight as one of America’s top towns for outdoor recreation. Thumb Butte, Granite Mountain, and Prescott National Forest are just a few of the favorite places for hiking and spending time in nature. With 5 lakes, a lineup of golf courses, and 450 miles of well-groomed scenic trails, there is never a shortage of activities.
Seligman, AZ is located at 5,240 feet in elevation alongside the Big Chino Wash in a northern section of Chino Valley. The wash is a major tributary of the Verde River. Originally born as a railroad town encampment named Prescott Junction, Seligman was officially named in 1886 after Jesse Seligman, a railroad financier. Located in beautiful Northern Arizona between Flagstaff and Kingman, Seligman successfully made the transition from railroad town to Route 66 town, however when Seligman was bypassed by Interstate-40 in 1978, it suffered a devastating economic blow. Eventually Seligman would use this setback as a catalyst to make a name for itself. In 1987, Seligman gained its name “Birthplace of Historic Route 66” due to the efforts of Seligman residents, most notably Angel Delgadillo, the Seligman barber who convinced the State of Arizona to dedicate Route 66 as a historic highway. This grassroots effort to bring Route 66 back not only revitalized Seligman but it also caused world-wide interest in Route 66 and the old-fashioned Americana that it represents.
If this story reminds you of the adorable town called Radiator Springs depicted in Pixar’s animated feature Cars, there is a reason for that! Seligman served as the inspiration for the storyline and topography of the little Route 66 town that had to fight for its survival after being by-passed by the interstate. Now travelers from all over the world come to visit Seligman to see the Route 66 town that fought for the rebirth of the nostalgic road. The town of Seligman begins the scenic drive that is the longest remaining stretch of Route 66 in the United States. Other nearby scenic locations include Supai, the Grand Canyon, and the Prescott, Kaibab, and Coconino national forests.
The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon, one of the world’s seven natural wonders, should be a must-see in everyone’s lifetime. It is characterized as a steep-sided canyon formation carved by the Colorado River. Nearly two billion years of geological history have been revealed in cross-section as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. Vast in scale, the canyon is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and attains a depth of over a mile. Much of the Grand Canyon and its adjacent rim are contained within Grand Canyon National Park. It offers an excellent record of three of the fours eras of geological time through a vast array of rock types, caves, a rich fossil record, and significant archeological resources.
However, the significance of the Grand Canyon is not just limited to its geology. The park contains several ecosystems. Its great biological diversity can be attributed to the presence of five of the seven life zones. This is equivalent to traveling from Mexico to Canada! The canyon also serves as an ecological refuge. It is home to numerous rare, endemic (found only at the Grand Canyon), and threatened or endangered plant and animal species. For thousands of years, it has also been continuously home to Native Americans who have built settlements within the canyons and its many caves.
Grand Canyon National Park is understandably one of the world’s premier natural destinations, attracting five million visitors per year. Aside from casual sightseeing from the South Rim, rafting, hiking, running, and helicopter tours are also widely popular. The floor of the valley is accessible by foot, muleback, or by boat or raft from upriver. Experienced hikers often make the trek from rim-to river-to rim in one day. However, if you’re wanting to slow down and soak in the views, many permits are given for camping as well. Tourists wishing for a more vertical perspective can go skydiving, board helicopters and small airplanes for canyon flyovers. In 2007, the Hualapai Indian Tribe opened the glass-bottomed Grand Canyon Skywalk on their property, Grand Canyon West. The Skywalk is about 250 miles by road from Grand Canyon Village at the South Rim.

This incredible land provides something for everyone to see and do. In addition to its outstanding recreational opportunities, it is a repository of clean water, diverse wildlife habitat, and many historic and prehistoric sites. The scenic landscapes range from cactus-studded desert to pine-clad mountains. This variety, coupled with a wide range in elevation (from 3,000 to 8,000 feet), offers outstanding recreational opportunities all year long.
