They make a delicious 3 scoop ice cream sundae in a waffle cup. It's more than one person should try and finish so bring a friend and enjoy

Quaint little station in Williams for the start of the Grand Canyon railroad to the Grand Canyon. Made to look old fashioned like the trains - good journey to the canyon
