My husband and I decided to drive Route 66 from Williams as far as we could to Vegas. It was nice to see this town busy and doing well with tourists. It was a real throw back to the age of the cruisers. The downtown area has been kept up to really honor the history and feel of that era.... More

This is a pretty historic but tiny town. It still holds a lot of it's original charm and half the original businesses. En-route to the Grand Canyon, it makes sense to stay the night here and plan your trip to the Canyon, you'll be glad you did.

We didn't know! Going to the Canyon and home from the Canyon we stopped for food, a walk and some local color. Diners, bars, stores, historical info, nice people....all in all a charming town. Do not drive through it. STOP and enjoy!

This is a very cute little town that can take you back the good old days. We enjoyed our walk through this town. Williams has some great shopping and the prices are pretty good too. Many unusual shops that have a lot of unique things.

This is a quaint and really neat place. We were able to walk up and down the street from our hotel. Plenty of restaurants and shops to browse in. Fabulous artwork to look at and for sale from paintings, etchings, metal work, and photography. Lots of coca cola items for sale as well as western clothing and other western items... More

The Downtown Williams Historic Walk is incredible, what a great step back into the great era of Route 66. Even if just passing through, be sure to stop in and check out Williams AZ.

Take a short detour on old Route 66 which is Main Street in Williams, AZ. It's a fun little town that prides itself on being stuck in the 60s. Bet you can't drive down the street through town without wanting to find a parking place so you can walk around and take some pictures, maybe grab some food and souvenirs.

While traveling highway 40, we happened upon Williams. What an amazing little town! We were just passing through for dinner, but what a great place to get off on Route 66 and go back in time! We ate at the Route 66 Diner, which had a great atmosphere with inside or out seating, and fantastic food (BBQ chicken cooked right... More
