Boende nära Grand Canyon

Vi lämnade Grand Canyon när solen var på väg att gå ner och fortsatte att köra söderut mot vår nästa anhalt. Vi anlände till staden Williams ungefär klockan åtta på kvällen och checkade genast in på hostellet Grand Canyon Hotel Hostel. När vi planerade vår resa kollade vi på många olika alternativ för var vi skulle stanna över natten. Allra enklast skulle ju ha varit att övernatta i Grand Canyon Village, men eftersom vi reste på budget, så var detta inte ett alternativ för oss (Grand Canyon Village är inte precis billigt). Det fanns billiga hotell/motell/hostell i ständerna runtom Grand Canyon, men eftersom vi var på väg söderut kändes det mest logiskt att övernatta i just Williams. Vi betalade 26,50 dollar per person för att övernatta här, vilket var bland det billigaste boendet under hela resan.

Williams – En del av Route 66

Williams är en liten stad strax söder om Grand Canyon South Rim. Det märks att de lever för turismen, för den här staden är verkligen ett paradis för alla som någonsin vill uppleva en äkta Route 66 vibe. Här finns massor av inn, motell och restauranger som alla hyllar -50 och -60 talet med sina bländande neonskyltar och kitschiga exteriörer. Genast vi steg ut ur bilen kunde man höra musik runt alla hörn, och den centrala delen av staden var full av människor som avnjöt ett mål mat på något av stadens alla caféer och restauranger. När vi hade checkat in på vårt hostell och tagit en snabb dusch begav oss ut på jakt efter mat. Till slut hamnade vi på Historic Brewing Barrel + Bottle House, “ett av stans bästa hamburgerställen” som vår hostellvärd beskrev restaurangen. Maten var god, den egenbryggda ölen var god och stämningen var alldeles perfekt. Det här var den perfekta starten på vårt kommande Route 66 äventyr!

Accommodation close to Grand Canyon

We left Grand Canyon when the sun was about to go down and continued driving south to our next stopping point. We arrived to the town Williams about eight o’clock in the evening, and we checked in to our hostel Grand Canyon Hotel Hostel. When we were planning our trip, we checked many different alternatives for where to stay the night. Easiest would have been to stay in Grand Canyon Village, but since we were traveling on a budget, it wasn’t an alternative for us (Grand Canyon Village is not really a cheap place). There was a lot of cheap hotels/motels/hostels in the cities around Grand Canyon, but since we were going south anyway, it was most logical to stay in Williams. We payed 26,50 dollars per person for this accommodation, which was among the cheapest accommodations during the whole trip.

Williams – A part of Route 66

Williams is a small town just south of Grand Canyon South Rim. You notice that they live for tourism, ’cause this town is a real paradise for anyone who wants to experience a genuine Route 66 vibe. Here are a numerous of inns, motels och restaurants which honor the 50’s and 60’s with their bright neon signs and kitschy exteriors. Right away when we stepped out of the car, you could hear the music in every corner, and the central part of the town was full of people enjoying dinner at one of the city’s many cafés and restaurants. When we had checked in at our hostel and taken a quick shower, we went out on the town to find something to eat. Finally we ended up at Historic Brewing Barrel + Bottle House, “one of the city’s best hamburger places” which our hostel host described it as. The food was good, the own brewed beer was good and the atmosphere was absolutely perfect. This was the perfect start for our upcoming Route 66 adventure!
