United States Train Vacations

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 Railroad.

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.

Autumn at the Greenbrier & Historic Trains

JEANNINE GILBERT
5 stars
“Eric our guide was full of facts presented in an interesting way.Eric was caring and enthusiastic. We would definitely sign up on another trip with him. My husband and I had walked through the memorials two days before yet still learned more on our guided tour. We liked the variety of trains,each different. The Potomac Eagle was our favorite.The dining experience was wonderful. The train, we did not enjoy, was the Cass was the one train we didn’t like.It was open air and unfortunately, the weather was awful, cold and light snow. Very uncomfortable. The Hobo lunch was unappetizing,with stale buns.The historic steam engine was what we liked about it..This was our first time in West Virginia, the scenery was beautiful and the history interesting.We liked the way Eric recommended restaurants in walking distance for each evening, The Greenbrier Inn was was very interesting in a beautiful location. We enjoyed learning about the history and seeing all the extravagant chandeliers. The formal dining was fun and a chance to get to know new friends better. Rick our driver was skilled and personable. The whole experience was a 5.
