As a traveler, there’s no better birthday present to yourself than a road trip to unexplored territory. For my 51st birthday, I’m visiting the Prescott area of Arizona with side trips to Jerome, Camp Verde, and Sedona. Six and a half hours from from Southern California, past fields of saguaros and through small towns named Hope and Brenda, we arrived in Prescott in time for dinner. After stuffing our bellies with burgers and fries from Red Robin, it’s back to the hotel to unwind. With just two days to explore and lots to do and see, a good night sleep is this weary travelers best option. Good night, Prescott.
