Williams, CA is an Outdoor Paradise!


When you see an arch, take a drive through it and enter beautiful Williams, a city of around5,4000 people 60 miles north of Sacramento. Williams is located 60 miles north of Sacramento equal distance between the Sierras and the Pacific Coast  in the heart of the Sacramento Valley.

Known for its beautiful parks Williams is an outdoorsman's paradise.

Its primary industry is farming and you'll find plenty of fields filled with tomatoes, rice, almonds, walnuts, almonds, hay, grain, and cattle.

For tourists, Williams is the gateway to hunting and fishing.  Deer, elk and wild boar hunting, and along the Sacramento River a few miles away  Salmon, Striper, Steelhead and Sturgeon fishing provide great outdoor opportunities for sportsmen.

 Summers hover around 90s and can reach 110 degrees, while winters rarely drop below freezing. There are 16 inches of rain annually, so irrigation supplies the water needed from crops. 

Williams was first called Central. In 1876 it was renamed Williams to honor William Williams, who gave most of the land for the townsite. In May 1920 it became a General Law City.

Special events include Pioneer Day, always the first Saturday in June;  Antique Show & Sale in March; Colusa Holiday Craft Fair at the Colusa Fairgrounds; and Annual Festival of Lights Parade.

One of the highlights to a visit is the Sacramento Valley Museum.  cityofwilliams.org
