America’s west is home to some of the country’s greatest national parks, monuments, and must-see destinations. Travel across the western frontier to Colorado to explore Rocky Mountain towns and the historic trains of the area, or continue west to Salt Lake City, the cowboy town of Jackson, and San Francisco, the City by the Bay, with easy connections to Muir Woods and its Giant Sequoia groves and Yosemite National Park, home to Yosemite Falls, the highest waterfall in North America, as well as Half Dome and El Capitan, the park’s most notable rock formations.

Other popular destinations for a western U.S. rail tour include Glacier National Park for a journey across one of the most famous roadways, the Going-to-the-Sun Road; Yellowstone National Park to see an incredible variety of flora, fauna, waterfalls, deep canyons, hot springs and geysers; Mt. Rushmore showcasing the visages of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln and visited by more than 3 million people annually; and, Seattle, the crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest, ideally located as a launching point for Alaska cruise vacations and Western Canada rail tours.
