Visited at Christmas...So nice

We happened to be in Williams at Christmas and walked through the depot. It is very nice and was beautiful with all the Christmas lights. Great spot to visit.

Nice variety of gifts. Employees very knowledgeable and helpful. This is where you pick up ALL tickets (food, train, bus) so you will spend some time getting to know this place.

There was a wide variety of gifts available in all price ranges. This is a nice place to spend time while waiting to board the train to the Grand Canyon.

Great gift shop and history about the area. Be sure to stop in and see the Depot when in Williams, AZ and take the train ride if you have the time.

This is the information center for visitors in Williams. It represents the history of the area and aids in understanding the people who have settled there. Since Williams was and is a railroad town, this building is the perfect place to illustrate that. A nice stop. Clean restrooms.

This depot is very cute and has a nice gift shop. The one thing you need to know though, is there is no water sold there. Only water bottles that you can refill at the Grand Canyon. Good for recycling, but I was planning on buying water. Got my water bottle though!

We ate here because it was convenient as we waited for the train we are not big fans of the buffet that other travellers seem to like but it tasted real good and the coffee was good
