Southern USA

The southern U.S. is known for its deep history, antebellum architecture, and, above all else, charm. A rail vacation to the southern US can include trips that celebrate America’s musical history with stays in Memphis and New Orleans, tours of some of the country’s great Presidential Libraries, packages to special annual events like the Albuquerque Balloon Festival, or vacations to one of the Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon.

Trips to the south U.S. also include a selection of rail and river cruise and train to ocean cruise vacations which join well-planned rail packages with a refreshing cruise—either down the Mississippi River to New Orleans aboard a restored steamboat or a through the Panama Canal or Western Caribbean waters aboard a state-of-the-art ocean liner.
