Summer is here, and with it, our oppressive heat. Cool down with a trip up to Prescott to see what’s new.

La Planchada
Prescott’s first modern taqueria and tequila bar was an instant hit when it opened in February. A fun environment combined with an upscale Mexican menu – featuring green chile tequila chicken tacos and brisket tacos – makes La Planchada one of the most exciting new places in town. Tequila and mezcal cocktails don’t hurt, either. laplanchadataqueria.com

Founding Fathers Collective
Right in the center of Prescott’s downtown entertainment district is the Founding Fathers Collective, a collection of local shops that wouldn’t be out of place in a much larger metro. The emerging community hub boasts a taproom, barbershop, coffee shop, gym and a menswear shop featuring everything from clothes to luggage. foundingfatherscollective.com

Arizona Backcountry Llamas
Chris and Janice Dunn love hiking, nature and llamas. They combined their trio of passions to offer personalized nature excursions, ranch visits and guided llama pack trips in the Prescott area and Northern Arizona. Whether it’s Benjamin, Dudley or Stuart, there’ll be a woolly friend helping out, too. arizonallamas.com
