Wine, Dine, Ride and Romance…Show the one you love just how much they mean to you this year.
Cool summers and high elevations make Williams, located in Northern Arizona east of Flagstaff, one of the most picturesque and visitor-friendly communities along historic Route 66. A quaint mountain town, Williams has the personality of an authentic Western village, plus the convenience of nostalgic Route 66 motels, RV parks and cozy B&Bs. Nestled in the largest stand of ponderosa pines, Williams is known as the “Gateway to the Grand Canyon®” and is just an hour’s drive away. You can also hop aboard the vintage Grand Canyon Railway for a two-hour journey by rail right into the national park.
Williams was the last town located on Route 66 to be bypassed by I-40, and continues to celebrate that historic route with vintage car shows and the Route 66 Cultural Heritage Days. Historic old town Williams is full of interesting shops and galleries. We believe you'll discover that Williams offers the best combination of lodging, meals, shopping and entertainment closest to the Grand Canyon.
