ENJOY DINNER AT THE RANCH
For more than 20 years, the Blazin’ M Ranch has provided visitors to Arizona an Old West experience to remember. It is more than dinner! It is a delicious BBQ followed by a toe-tappin’, knee-slappin’ hour-long Western stage production by award-winning musicians.
Arrive in plenty of time before dinner to enjoy the Western town featuring a museum, Old-Tyme photo studio, shooting gallery, ropin’ lessons, tractor pull, saloon, and Western shops that line the boardwalk.
Located in Cottonwood, Arizona.
EXPERIENCE WHISKEY ROW
Whiskey Row is full of some of Prescott’s oldest history. This street is named Whiskey Row because of the large number of saloons in one place. Whiskey Row developed after a fire in July of 1900 destroyed the entire block. When reconstructed, there were 40 saloons and bars rebuilt in the area.
This high number of saloons was primarily due to the gold rush culture that drew all kinds of settlers, cowboys, prospectors, bawdy girls, gamblers, and even outlaws to the town. Nowadays, Whiskey Row is known for its art galleries, candy shops, and its famous saloons. One stroll around this particular block would show you how full of life and history this town is!
Discover the wildlife park in Arizona called Out of Africa. It is one of the top Arizona zoos and is perfect for some family fun!
TIP: General admission is only $10 for each visit during the month of your birthday! Simply show a form of picture ID at the admissions window, like a driver’s license.
Some of the features at Out of Africa include:
You’ve never seen anything like this before! Witness one or more Bengal and Siberian tigers interact in a predator-and-play relationship, romping and splashing in a large pool as they play with their caretakers and various colorful toys.
Follow our animal caretakers on the Predator Feed as they throw 800 pounds of raw food to eagerly waiting carnivores. Plenty of opportunities to take amazing pictures while bears chow down, hyenas laugh, and lions roar.
African Bush Safari
No passport needed! You may be in Arizona, but you’ll feel like you’re in Africa when hitching a ride on your own African Bush Safari Tour, included with general admission. This 30-minute tour narrated by expert guides is a photographer’s dream.
ENJOY WESTERN ART
A great way to enjoy Prescott is to visit one of the many museums in the area. The Phippen Museum is an intimate museum exhibiting cowboy- and Native-American-themed works tracing the culture of the West.
Local artist and first president of the Cowboy Artists of America, George Phippen, passed away in 1965 at the age of 50 and never saw the museum that bears his name. But being a man dedicated to his Western art and supportive of others in like pursuit, he would no doubt be proud of the role the Phippen Museum plays today in the continued presentation, promotion and preservation of Art of the American West.
