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.
Williams is located about 30 minutes west of Flagstaff, AZ and just an hour south of the Grand Canyon. The city only has about 3,000 people living there and the total size of the city is 43.5 square mile. Williams was the last town on Historic Route 66 to be bypassed by Interstate 40.
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 1920s but it was not until 1990 when the course was reconfigured by Gary Panks, that its reputation grew.
Bearizona Wildlife Park -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.
Grand Canyon Railway - Since 1901, the Grand Canyon Railway has been taking people on a fabled journey into the heart of one of the seven natural wonders of the world. For those fortunate to have traveled on this iconic train, the Grand Canyon Railway is more than just a mode of transportation: it’s a trip back in time to what many consider the most awe-inspiring place on Earth.
Kaibab National Forest - Williams is surrounded by 550,000 acres of the Williams Ranger District of Kaibab National Forest (fs.usda.gov). Visitors find hiking trails, such as the Beal Wagon Road Trail that follows the route of an old wagon trail, along with opportunities to fish, camp and ride horses or bicycles.
Williams is named after William "Old Bill" Williams, a mountain man and trader who often trapped in the area.
