We had heard about the square in Prescott. We enjoyed walking the square and browsing on the unique shops. We will come back when we can spend more time.

I love it here so much I hope to retire here. The climate is as close to perfect as can be. So much to do, so much to see. Historical Wild West at its best.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I received a parking ticket across from the Square for 'parking outside the lines' yet there are no signs saying it's ILLEGAL and will cost $93.00 if you park outside the lines. Does Prescott expect to install signs or add notes to their website/TripAdvisor page noting that it's illegal to park on our outside of a parking line? I was ON the line not OUTSIDE the line yet received a $93.00 ticket.

I agree with Robert...they expect you to pay...since you are from out-of-state and, in reality, can not come back to argue in court.
