Driving distance from williams to grand canyon


Accommodations, meals and services are a little less expensive than at the national park. The drive from Williams, Arizona to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon takes a little more than an hour when traffic is light.

Highway 64 heads due north to Grand Canyon Village before turning east to follow the canyon rim to the Desert View Watchtower.

Beyond the foot-tall, round tower, the highway moves away from the canyon before ending at Route 89 in Cameron. Riding the Grand Canyon Railway is a must for train buffs. Travelers choose to sit in refurbished coach, dome or luxury parlor cars for the ride through the forested Colorado Plateau to Grand Canyon Village. Williams Depot, built in and listed on the National Record of Historic Places, is the southern terminus.
