This Charming Town In Arizona Is Perfect For A Summer Day Trip
School is out, the sun is beaming down, and monsoon rain clouds are looming over the horizon. In case the heat wave and solstice didn’t already remind you, summer is definitely in full swing here in Arizona. If you’re looking for ideas to make a short summer escape, let us help you out by suggesting a day trip trip to the pines. Where to? Williams.
This small town is located a little more than 30 miles west of Flagstaff and has all the charm you would expect out of a little Route 66 town: beautiful mountain and pine views, historic architecture, and unique attractions. It’s perfect for a day trip to escape the summer heat but you can easily spend a weekend (or longer) in this little town.
