Grand Canyon NP is in Arizona as is Route 66 - so can you visit while on a road trip?

let's take a look at your options...

Route 66 goes through both Flagstaff and Williams - both are great bases for visiting Grand Canyon South Rim

it's only 60 miles from Williams AZ

You could also choose to arrive in the park in an iconic way

The Grand Canyon Railway goes from Williams every day

You could access the West side of the park from towns like Kingman

This is perfect if you want to do the Skywalk

The north rim is still accessible, but a much longer drive.

It could be combined with a  trip to Monument Valley or Horseshoe Bend

Grand Canyon is a must visit spot and if you can I highly recommend you do the side trip

It's so close to Route 66 - it's been a classic trip for years!
