A great way to escape the sweltering heat, is an escapade to Prescott,az.! Prescott is in Yavapai county and is st an elevation of 5,374. In 1864 Prescott was designated as the capital of the Az. Territory replacing the temporary capital. Then in 1867 it was moved to Tucson. But Phoenix ultimately became the final capital in 1889. Prescott is only a two hour drive from Phoenix and three from Tucson.
