What a great little town high in the Arizona desert. Great place to shop, explore and eat. Very historic buildings along the old road of historic route 66. It is interesting to read the placards of the old buildings. If you headed or coming back from the Grand Canyon this is a must stop.

This is our second visit to Williams and coming in the summer definitely beats visiting in the winter hands down. Our hotel was located right on historic Route 66 and stepping out of the front door put us right in the middle of all the action. There were open air bars, restaurants and several shops to visit. This is such... More

We arrived at the Grand Canyon RV Park, which is immaculate and just a short walk to Route 66 town of Williams, AZ. Nice shoppes, plenty of restaurants and at 7pm, the town offers a free cowboy interactive show on Route 66. Each night go the week, the show moves one block so just check with any store and they...

We were traveling with some foreign visitors and we decided to stay in Williams while visiting the Grand Canyon. It is a great little town with many different shops to visit, The people are very friendly and it was like visiting the 'Old West'.

Friendly welcome to the town. You can buy a town walking map for 50c. Walking the town takes about an hour and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes. Well worth a short stop.

We had a lovely time in Williams, so much to see so little time. One lady had good old 50's music as you entered her store. Take time to have a cup of coffee if driving Route 66 stretch your legs you won't be disappointed.

We stopped here on the way to Grand Canyon...and actually stopped again on the way back down from the Grand Canyon! We did a littlle shopping and walking around the town. We didn't eat in Williams, but did see some restaurants. The Grand Canyon Train Ride departs from Williams. Nice shops and friendly people!

I had a patient tell me that if you are heading to LA after the Grand Canyon this is the place to go. Similar to the movie Cars. Not sure I agree.

Of course Williams still has its proximity to the starting point of the Grand Canyon road to keep up its popularity after the I-40 bypassing of Route 66, but this place seems like it could stand on its own even without that. Great little shops and restaurants - seems like a nice place to spend a day - only had... More

Great place to spend the night when driving from Las Vegas. Numerous motels at reasonable prices (the Comfort Inn was $79 for a spacious room for 4 including hot breakfast). The walk downtown has quite a few souvenir shops (prices "ok")
