Williams

Trip Planner USA  /  Arizona  /  Williams
(4.1/5 based on 10,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: wildlife areas, museums, theme parks
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. Make the most of your holiday in Williams by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our United States trip builder.

Where to stay

Located about 90 km (60 mi) south of the Grand Canyon, Williams' accommodations cater to visitors unable to get rooms just outside the national park or who want to take a scenic train ride into the park. An ideal base for exploring the wider region around the world-famous canyon, the city features dozens of affordable motels and inns. If you do not intent to spend much time indoors, consider pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, located just a short drive from the city's shops and restaurants.
