Traveling from Seligman to the Grand Canyon
Seligman Arizona lies along Route 66 about 30 minutes west of Williams, Arizona and 2.5-hour drive for visitors heading to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Known as the birthplace of historic Route 66, Seligman is a town with history and character. Although the area around Seligman, AZ is mostly flat high desert, Havasu Canyon and the only one-day whitewater rafting trip in the Grand Canyon are a short drive away. Grand Canyon Caverns is another great destination only a few miles from town, offering cave tours, lodging and a restaurant, all located near the cave.
A monument to 1950's Americana, dinners, classic cars, and kitsch tourist stops still dot this one street town. Aside from Rt. 66 aficionados, most people heading towards Seligman these days are doing a trip to Havasu Falls, visiting Grand Canyon Caverns or heading to Peach Springs for a rafting trip. From Seligman, Grand Canyon West and the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park are a few hours down the road and prices for food and lodging are very affordable, making it a good layover for your trip to Grand Canyon National Park and the surrounding areas.
