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

We stayed overnight here after we visited the Grand Canyon.. This is such a cool town and place to visit. The shops are all geared towards Route 66 ,, the restaurants are great,, and it's really neat to see the older signs and the history of Route 66! Very cool to see and hear the stories of Route 66

We recently spent the night in Williams on our way to the Grand Canyon. It snowed while we walked through the historic town in the evening adding magic to the air. The shops and walkways were not crowded but people were very friendly. If you are questioning whether or not to visit this quaint community during the winter season, our... More

Nat King Cole was so right when he sang, "...If you ever plan to motor west, travel my way, take the highway that's best. Get your kicks on route sixty-six..." Those words are still just as applicable today as it was back in the 50's! Take a step back in time walking through Williams, the last town bypassed by Interstate... More
