2 DAY ITINERARY
1 Head to the Snowbowl for a hike and ride on the skyride with panoramic views of the area.
2 Stop at the Museum of Northern Arizona for cultural, geological and historical perspectives on the area. Depending on your interests, this could be a quick trip or you could spend quite some time here.
3 Lunch at Beaver Street Brewery. Try the classic Beaver Street Burger with a glass of award-winning Hefeweizen.
1 Drive to Williams (about 40 minutes) to catch a ride on the Grand Canyon Railway to see the world’s most-talked-about canyon.
2 On the train, relax as you plan what you want to see at the Grand Canyon’s South Rim. Guides on board will be able to make suggestions if you need some. You’ll have a few hours to spend at the canyon before the train heads back to Williams. Grab lunch at Bright Angel Restaurant right on the rim, or just get a cone from the ice cream shop also on the rim. Best spot to eat the cone as you sit in the shade and enjoy the views is on the nearby swings hanging from the porches of the El Tovar hotel.
3 Hop aboard the train for your journey back to Williams where you’ll experience an Old West “train robbery,” so stay on your toes.
