    Grand Canyon Railway

    There’s a difference between where a train goes and where it takes you.  The Grand Canyon is a triumph of nature.  The railroad that serves it is a triumph of man.  Experience both as you ride the rails from Williams, Arizona to the South Rim.  Strolling musicians perform the tunes of the West as the terrain changes from high desert to prairie, prairie to pine.  It’s a view that’s ever-changing until you come across a view that changes so dramatically, it could very well change you.  Departs Williams Depot daily at 9:30 AM.  At the Canyon for 3-1/2 hours.  Arrives back at Williams Depot at 5:30 PM.  Only 1 mile from Grand Living B&B.

    Elephant Rocks Golf Course

    This is a city-owned golf course welcoming the public and visitors alike. Golfers of all skill levels can enjoy 18 holes of championship golf among ponderosa pines. The course is within a five-minute drive of the KOA on Golf Course Road in Williams. Come play a relaxing game!

    Grand Canyon Deer Farm

    Bring the whole family or group and walk among the tame fallow deer and hand-feed them at this well-run petting zoo. You’ll also see reindeer, Sitka deer miniature donkeys and horses, buffalo, and llamas, just to name a few. The farm is just eight miles east of Williams; take the I-40 Pittman Valley/Deer Farm Exit 171, turn north, them make a sharp left onto Deer Farm Road and follow it west for a half a mile. The deers are waiting! 1-800-926-DEER or Visit

    The Meteor Crater

    Was the first crater to be identified as an impact crater. Between 20,000 to 50,000 years ago, a small asteroid about 80 feet in diameter impacted the Earth and formed the crater. The crater is the best preserved crater on Earth and measures 1.2 km in diameter. For many years, scientists had denied that there were any impact craters on Earth. The origin of this crater has been a source of controversy for many years. The discovery of fragments of the Canyon Diablo meteorite help prove that the feature was in fact an impact crater.

    Grand Canyon National Park

    Grand Canyon is a geological wonder, one of the Natural Seven Wonders of the World! Geologists suggest land erosion created this giant chasm, whose layers and strata are naturally “painted” in the spectacular colors. The south rim is open all year; the north rim is open May through mid-October.


    A drive-thru wildlife adventure at the gateway to the Grand Canyon, it’s wild just as the West once was.  Experience the majesty of bison, nimble sheep, stealthy wolves and more from the comfort and safety of your own vehicle, amidst 160 acres of pristine forest.  Don’t miss the walk-thru area where guests can view adorable bear cubs and smaller animals.  BEARIZONA is a must see while visiting the Grand Canyon and Williams, AZ.
