About Williams, AZ

Williams, also known as the "Gateway to the Grand Canyon", is surprisingly varied for a town with such a small population (3,023 at the 2010 census). Just an hour south of the Grand Canyon and located on historic Route 66, it thrives on tourism, and is home to several attractions, including the Grand Canyon Railway, which, among other things, boasts a train ride to the heart of the Grand Canyon.

For those looking to buy a home there, Williams offers both the exciting downtown experience and the great outdoors—no less than seven lakes along with hiking and camping opportunities.

Landmarks & Attractions


Williams is just an hour south of the Grand Canyon, but the town itself and the area around it has much to love, as well. Outdoor activities include hiking, horseback riding, camping, and fishing at the many lakes and reservoirs.

Other attractions include:

Elephant Rocks Golf Course

In the shadow of Bill Williams Mountain, Elephant Rocks at Williams is the perfect escape from the summer heat of the Valley. Nestled at 7000 feet above sea level, the course meanders its way through stands of large Ponderosa pines. There has been a course here since the 1920’s but it was not until 1990, when the course was reconfigured by Gary Panks, that its reputation grew. | Website

Route 66

As the website "Experience Williams" states:

"Only in Williams, Arizona will you find a stretch of Route 66 with shopping, dining, lodging, and cowboy action—fun for the whole family. Route 66 is an experience, a feeling, a perception, a taste of sight & sound, and a mystery that can only be resolved by driving the pavement itself."

Cataract Creek Gang

This group stages nightly gunfights and other ruckus around the otherwise peaceful town of Williams. They shoot people for laughs and they don't care if you don't think that's not nice. If you want to find a schedule so you can catch them in the act you might try calling the number at the bottom of this page.

Bearizona is approximately 160 acres. Visitors will drive through more than three miles of Ponderosa Pine Forest viewing North American animals in natural habitats when they visit. More animals are exhibited in Fort Bearizona, a beautiful 20 acre walk-thru area, along winding paths which is more of a "zoo" type setting. | Website

History


Williams is named after William "Old Bill" Williams, a mountain man and trader who often trapped in the area.

Founded in 1881, Williams was named for the famous trapper, scout and mountain man, "Old Bill Williams." A statue of "Old Bill" stands in Monument Park, located on the west side of the city. The large mountain directly south of town is named Bill Williams Mountain and the Town was incorporated July 9, 1901.

Williams was the last town to have its section of Route 66 bypassed, due to lawsuits that kept the last section of Interstate 40 in Arizona from being built around the town. After settlements called for the state to build three Williams exits, the suits were dropped and I-40 was completed. On October 13, 1984, Interstate 40 was opened around the town and newspapers the next day reported the essential end of US 66. The following year, Route 66 was decommissioned.

Williams Historic Business District and Urban Route 66, Williams were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and 1989, respectively.

Weather


Williams has a cool-summer Mediterranean climate. On average in Williams, December is the coldest month, July is the warmest month, and August is the wettest month. Winter usually brings enough snow for a small ski hill and other winter sports. Summer's relatively cool temperatures and tall pine forests make Williams a very attractive destination for residents from the nearby hot deserts.
