Ever since I moved to the US, I've taken it upon myself to travel more and experience more new places. The different seasons adding new charm to known places and bringing more adventure to newer ones never ceases to fascinate me. Growing up in Chennai, I've only experienced the hottest of weathers except for those gloomy, gray-skied monsoon months. And for this boredom with the heat, I kept postponing my trip to Arizona - home to the Grand Canyon.
Away from the gray Seattle skies and Olympic vistas, I flew to Phoenix, Arizona. While many Grand Canyon visitors stay in hotels within the park itself or choose the capital city of Flagstaff, I chose to book an Airbnb in Williams. This quaint town on the historic Route 66 offers the unblemished charm of a small town with its neon signs, rustic stores, handmade souvenirs, and wonderful food. Now, over to my guide to the Grand Canyon.
