When the sun sets in Prescott, the saloons come to life, and Whiskey Row is the place to be!

It's home to some of Prescott's oldest history ever since the gold rush drew in all kinds of people, including settlers, cowboys and outlaws. And you better believe they were no stranger to shootouts.

The block was named Whiskey Row for its 40 saloons where people went to drink, eat and gamble.

Today there are no longer 40 saloons, but many of the buildings are still standing.

Walk the block and grab a drink at a bar where some of the most famous cowboys and outlaws hung out.

Stop in The Palace Saloon, the historic spot where Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp threw back a drink or two. They're infamous for their gunfight at the OK Corral that took place in Old Tombstone.

You can even go back in time and watch gunslingers duel in the streets during the town's Annual Shootout every July.

This town is full of history and they celebrate it in style.
