For our curious potential freshman I will be answering a question today: what do you do on a three day weekend in Prescott? Well, you are in luck as I happen to know the answer.
Unfortunately, part of that answer is homework but, there are fun things that you can do with your free time in Prescott, AZ. For example, take a walk downtown, there are so many amazing little shops and places to eat should you get hungry while you wander. One of my personal favorite places to stop in and get a quick bite is Shannon’s wraps and cheesecakes. The restaurant is a small family place and located just off the square; they have the most amazing cheese cake I have ever eaten!!
If you’re not the downtown type then take a stroll through the dells which are located just across from campus. That’s actually what I did this weekend, take a look at some of the amazing views from the top of the dells!
And, if you are not the hiking type then the movies may be a good place to go. At the Picture Show movie theater a few minutes outside of downtown you can get discounted tickets and relax in comfy adjustable leather seats. Additionally, not so far from the theater is the mall with numerous stores to walk around and neat little places to eat.
About 20 minutes away from the mall is Prescott Valley, there is another theater there and tons of other interesting stores to visit. So whatever you like to do for fun, you can find it here in Prescott AZ. Don’t fear there is plenty to do other than homework when you attend Embry-Riddle.
