Williams, Az "Gateway to the Grand Canyon". Home to
The Grand Canyon Railway. Named after the mountain man/trapper known as
Bill Williams. Established in the 1800’s the small mountain town of
Williams is located at around 6700 feet in elevation and is surrounded by ponderosa pines frequented by tourist and is an area "where the deer and the antelope play". Our small downtown section consists of many restaurants, shops, novelty stores. There are numerous lakes for fishing, wooded areas for camping under the stars and 4 wheeling, and a well known location for hunters. Our warmer summer months play host to cowboy shootouts and old- fashioned hay rides. Winter usually includes mountain snow and quiet evenings in front of the fireplace.
