Safaris · Gift & Specialty Shops · History Museums
A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Williams lies on one of the first highways ever built in America, the iconic "Route 66." The town boasts many inns, motels, restaurants, and shops, although its most important feature is serving as the southern terminus of a scenic railway leading to the area's most famous tourist attraction, the World Heritage-listed Grand Canyon. With just 3,000 permanent residents, this old logging town is packed with 19th-century brick buildings and Victorian homes that are worth a look. Round out your itinerary by exploring the surrounding ponderosa pines, fishing lakes, and hiking trails during your holiday here. Take the guesswork out of planning a United States vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
