- Take a day trip to Williams and witness a "Wild-West Shootout," then ride an authentic steam-powered locomotive 65-miles to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Shop along the Canyon or try a little ice-cream treat while enjoying the view. Your return trip holds a little "surprise." If you prefer to stay in Williams, there are quaint B&Bs as well as the popular Fray Marcos Hotel. Antique shops line the charming streets of Williams, which is part of historic Old Route 66. Fares run from $24.95-$119.95 round trip.
