America by Train
Rolling prairies, wide-open plains, and towering mountain peaks
paint the picturesque backdrop as you explore America by rail. Add
to that bustling metropolises, expansive national parks, and
acclaimed historic attractions, and it is easy to see why the
United States is the perfect destination for train vacations.
Traveling aboard Amtrak
trains, enjoy routes that take you from Chicago to the East
Coast or the West, traveling cross country to explore the best the
USA has to offer.
The beauty of taking a train across America is that your
adventure begins the moment you board the train. Settle into your
cozy onboard accommodations and leave the driving to someone else
as you travel deep into the unspoiled natural beauty of the U.S.A.
Admire the passing scenery from your seat or the train's
observation lounge. Enjoy a hot meal in the dining car or the café
as the train crisscrosses the country. While many of our independent train tours and escorted
train tours include overnight train rides aboard iconic
long-distance trains, there is a great selection of rail vacation
packages that solely feature excursions aboard day trains. These
passenger trains are just as historic and include scenic trains,
such as the Grand Canyon Railway, Colorado's Durango &
Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, and New England's Cape Cod Central
Each train vacation in America incorporates iconic train
journeys into a well-planned itinerary that also includes visits to
popular destinations, comprehensive sightseeing, incredible routes,
and more. Choose from train trips in Alaska, popular USA Coast to
Coast vacations, fall foliage tours, or visits to America's
national parks by train. You may select vacations with luxury
train accommodations in sleeper cars or from an array of one-way
journeys. With more than 100 vacations in the United States alone,
you are sure to find the perfect itinerary.
