Summertime in Williams

At the time of this writing it’s mid-July. This is normally our hottest month and the temperatures we’re seeing now are pretty typical—low- to mid-80s F during the day, 50s-60s F overnight.

 

Summer is also our rainy season. From mid-July to mid-August is when we get the most rain—about two inches, on average.

 

Compared to the desert climate most people think of when they picture Arizona property, summer near Williams, AZ is quite mild and allows for plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors... without the suffocating heat.

Does it snow in Williams, Arizona?

Winters here are fairly moderate as well. We do get some snow beginning as early as November (a little October snow isn’t unheard of, but isn’t typical). If you enjoy snow sports, you won’t be disappointed as we have Elk Ridge Ski Area just a few miles away, where you can expect about 150 inches of snowfall during a typical year. At Spring Flower Ranch, you can anticipate a bit less than half that.

What’s the town of Williams like?

Williams, Arizona is a beautiful spot for those who appreciate “Americana.” It’s located on Route 66 and is a popular stop for those touring the historic highway and for people heading to the Grand Canyon. Aside from the more “touristy” activities, you’ll find plenty to do as a local here, too.

 

Golphers can play 18 holes at Elephant Rocks, a beautiful championship course on the western edge of town. Music lovers, and especially fans of classic rock and country music, will find great live bands most nights of the week during the summer at many of the downtown bars and eateries. And you’ll never go hungry with the extensive dining options, from traditional American meat ‘n potatoes to Mexican, Cajun, and Thai cuisines. If you’re a beer lover, there are a number of craft breweries nearby as well.
