Prescott’s Most Romantic Location: Sunset on Watson Lake

First date or thousandth date, one of the best locations in Prescott to spend an evening with that special someone… only costs $2. Go on a Wednesday and it won’t cost a thing. After exploring historic downtown Prescott and enjoying drinks on Whiskey Row, we made our way to Watson Lake just in time to watch the sunset.

Of course, Watson Lake’s natural beauty isn’t a secret and may just be the site of a photography meetup:

But with 70 acres to explore, it’s easy to find a secluded area away from the bustle.

Time it just right and you can see the sky’s various color changes reflected on the rocks and Watson Lake. A much better, real-life alternative to a typical dinner-and-a-movie date.
