Williams Arizona: Crimes Statistics, Arrest and Population Information
Williams is a town in the Coconino County of north-central Arizona. It is situated on an elevation at the base of Bill William Mountains. The town is surrounded by natural beauty which attracts immense tourism. It is encircled by the Kaibab national forest and is also the gateway to the original famous Route 66, Grand Canyon and white horse lake among other things. Most tourists come to the town from the Southwest Chief Amtak and Interstate 40.
The town cannot be termed as a city as it has been designated as rural. It is mostly known for its healthcare like primary care, mental health and dental. It has also been designated as the Arizona Medically Underserved Area. The hospital in the area is not well equipped. It doesn’t have beds or any infrastructure, but it does have three physicians who are responsible to check on patients. The hospital also has a free healthcare clinic service.
The main highlight of the town is its tourist attractions. Other than the forest surrounding it and the proximity to the Grand Canyon, there are fishing, hunting and poaching activities there also horseback riding. Then because of the high tourism, there are good hotels around town. Then there is a trail to the Bearizona wildlife park through Williams. Because of its geographical location and the fact that everything is so organized, the growth of population in the town remains high. Also, because of this spurt in population, the income generated in the town also stays equitable. But still, the city cannot be called a flourishing one because the average population living in the city, that s non-tourist, is poor. And this income that is generated out of tourism does not suffice to them. This makes the town slightly backward in terms of economic conditions.
