A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Williams lies on one of the first highways ever built in America, the iconic "Route 66." The town boasts many inns, motels, restaurants, and shops, although its most important feature is serving as the southern terminus of a scenic railway leading to the area's most famous tourist attraction, the World Heritage-listed Grand Canyon.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Thu): hike along South Kaibab Trail and then explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon South Rim. On the next day, get engrossed in the history at Williams Depot and then take an exotic tour of Bearizona Wildlife Park.
