Jul 24 - We finally finished up with our doctors' appointments in Cottonwood and we left TT Verde Valley and headed west along I-40.  We stayed a couple of nights in Williams, AZ because we wanted to see the Grand Canyon one more time -- only about 60 miles north of Williams.

We arrived in Williams early afternoon and took a drive around.  We discovered that Williams was the last town in America on Historic Route 66 to be bypassed by the freeway, I-40, in 1984.

This is downtown Williams.  Historic Route 66 is the main street in town.

Cruiser's Cafe seems to be the most popular place.

We just had to stop by and enjoy a Grand Canyon Beer!

An Historic Route 66 store with all kinds of Route 66 stuff!

Shootouts erupt somewhere on Route 66 nightly in Williams, at a different location each evening.  We found out where the shootout would be this evening and went to watch the performance (in the rain)!  But it was fun!


We spent an enjoyable day in Williams, on Route 66!!
