Train to America’s National Parks
National parks were born of the idea to protect America’s natural wonders for all to enjoy. To that end, the country’s first national park, Yellowstone, was established in 1872. Today, the United States is home to 58 national parks showcasing spectacular treasures from fumaroles, geysers and countless lakes, glaciers and mountain ranges to sandstone arches and colorful rock formations, deep canyons, and sweeping expanses of land home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna.
For a unique vacation, visit U.S. national parks by train! Some of the country’s most popular park’s like Glacier and Grand Canyon are on iconic rail routes offering daily service to these must-see destinations. Others, like Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Teton, and Arches, are accessible by car or motorcoach and are excellent destinations for a rail-drive getaway or an escorted U.S. national parks tour.
Your vacation can take you to the great parks of the southwest, Alaska’s preserved natural treasures and other western wonders in-between.
