What's Around Williams, AZ



I just spent a weekend in Williams, AZ with my sister-in-law, Deb.  We have always wondered what Williams was like and what to do while there.  We found out that there are lots of activities in and around town.  The historic district provides plenty of places to shop, eat, and stay.  We stayed at the Red Garter Inn (post on this place to come).   It was very close to the bars and nightlife, which we had to check out.

Williams is located around 30 miles from Flagstaff, along Route 66, and in the middle of a huge Ponderosa Pine Forest.  Its location provides plenty of outdoor activities.  You can hop the Grand Canyon Railway to the canyon and take in the breathtaking scenery.  More fun things to do are camping, hiking, fishing, boating, biking, horseback riding, and much more.  If you don’t want to take a train to the Grand Canyon, then drive there.  It takes only an hour to get to the park.  Deb and I decided to check out Walnut Canyon and the Sinagua ruins.  That was an amazing trek and well worth it.  There is also Bearizona where you drive your car through the natural environment of several animal species.  That is also another place we went and I recommend.

If you don’t want to stay in a big city such as Flagstaff, I would recommend giving the quaint little town of Williams a try.  You won’t be disappointed.

Grand Canyon Railways and Polar Express




We met several wonderful people at the bar and even played shuffle board.

How about some Karaoke?  They have that too.
