Prescott people in a parkThe Town of Prescott offers a variety of attractions and activities for visitors. History buffs will find a wealth of well-preserved historical buildings and heritage sites. Clear waters and old sunken shipwrecks have made Prescott a popular location for divers as well. In downtown Prescott, you’ll find over 100 welcoming shops, services and restaurants and a farmers' market open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. At Fort Wellington National Historic Site you can try on a costume from the 1800s, explore a gun boat wreck and enjoy treats cooked over an open fire. Prescott is also home to an outstanding outdoor theatre. The St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival performs in a lovely amphitheatre on the Trail at Water and Edward.
