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")

We found this town by accident, but so glad we did. It is a cool town where you feel like you have stepped back in time. There are quite a few interesting shops and if you are looking for Rt 66 memorabilia, this is the spot. We didn't eat in the town, but it does have a lot of old... More

On your way to Grand Canyon this is a good place to stop, eat, and spend the night before/after your canyon trip. An original Rt 66 town, there are a lot of restaurants, shops, and lodging much better than Tusayan and more reasonable

Fun, neat little town! Fun browsing and shopping. Lots of Route 66 signs and memorabilia. Lots of flower pots and planters on the streets. Cool restaurants and shops. Friendly folks. Gateway to Grand Canyon National Park. Once you are anywhere near town, almost everything is walkable. Fast food places (about four) are close to the I-40 exit as you start... More

We decided to use Williams as our home port while we visited the Grand Canyon and it did not disappoint us. Shop after shop of fun Route 66 history. And restaurant after restaurant of good food. Just walking the three to four blocks of Williams Route 66 can be a small day adventure. We stayed at a quaint older hotel... More

There is a lot of fun in Williams. It's kind of a mix of bona Fidel ranchers and funny tourist attractions. It's a great stop on the way to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. The quick draw display at 7 pm in Williams is a hoot. There is a Safeway, also a lot of cute shops and the... More
