Downtown Prescott is the best place in Arizona for antiques shopping. For Native American crafts and Old West memorabilia, stop in at Ogg’s Hogan, 111 N. Cortez St. (tel. 928/443-9856).

In the Hotel St. Michael’s shopping arcade, Hotel Trading, 110 S. Montezuma St. (tel. 928/778-7276) carries some genuine Native American artifacts at reasonable prices. Owner Ernie Lister also makes silver jewelry in the 19th-century Navajo style. In this same arcade, the Old Sage Bookshop, 110 S. Montezuma St. (tel. 928/776-1136) is a wonderful used-book store selling primarily hardback editions. On the same block, you’ll find the Arts Prescott Gallery, 134 S. Montezuma St. (www.artsprescott.com; tel. 928/776-7717), a cooperative of local artists; and Van Gogh’s Ear, 156B S. Montezuma St. (www.vgegallery.com; tel. 928/776-1080), which was founded by a splinter group from the co-op.

Head north of Prescott to Granite Creek Vineyards, 2515 Rd. 1 E., Chino Valley (www.granitecreekvineyards.com; tel. 928/636-2003), which produces organic, sulfite-free wines that are surprisingly good.
