Journey Through the United States

America's national passenger rail network, Amtrak, allows you to embark on unforgettable train vacations from coast to coast. Our comprehensive tours offer you multiple ways to experience this vast country aboard many of Amtrak's famous routes.

When should you travel to the United States? With such a vast landscape, that depends on your destination. While in the northern US the peak season is typically June to September, in the southern US peak is the spring and fall. Fall Foliage tours are very popular in New England and operate a short season during September and October.

New England Autumn Foliage Express
13 Nov 2023
SAMANTHA RUBIO
5 stars
“Exploring by train the romantic countryside painted with green fields, covered bridges, quaint running streams, and enchantingly fiery foliage. This trip had been in my manifestation journal for years, and it DELIVERS. Our trip was the week of October 8-15, 2023 and the foliage was PEAK! The whole trip is jam packed with activities, you really feel you're getting the most out of your experience and the best of New England because you're jumping from spot to spot. Mary Reed our guide was so considerate, always cautioning us what few activities could possibly pose a challenge to those with mobility issues, which most did very well with and had a great experience regardless. Mary was great, making sure we were all on schedule, pointed out remarkable sights, and made the experience informational, fun, humorous, and full of great surprises. Our driver Tom from Brown Coach was so great and personable. We were traveling by motor coach the whole trip, taking us from hotel to train and train to hotel, each train ride lasting 2-3 hours. We had a seat rotation to make sure there is no fighting for the "best seat". Tips: - Italian food in Boston Day 1 (we had Famiglia Di Gorgio, Incredible!) - I found the most unique shopping was in Mystic, Ct. Make time to roam around in it. - Wear really good walking shoes - Bring gloves, a warm hat, and extra layers for day 4 as you go on the Mt. Washington train. - Bring lots of vitamin D and C to maintain your health, everyone was sniffling and sneezing by the end

JEANINE Philadelphia
5 stars
“It was a fun experience. You get to meet a lot of nice people from all over the country/world. The train staff were friendly and helpful. I would suggest the longer version of this trip where you get a chance to get off and spend the night in some of the stops. That's my only regret!

Amtrak Tours

Traveling through 46 states and offering access to over 500 Amtrak destinations, America's national passenger rail network, Amtrak, allows you to embark on unforgettable train vacations from coast to coast. The travel packages featuring Amtrak trains are just as diverse as the routes themselves. Experience the beauty of the great American West aboard the Southwest Chief, departing from Chicago and traveling through New Mexico and Arizona. Venture to the country's perennially popular national parks, including Grand Canyon, Glacier and Yellowstone, via the railroad. Amtrak vacations aboard the California Zephyr offer a cross-country expedition from the Midwest to San Francisco. You even have the option to explore the historic and exciting destinations of the East Coast with a train trip aboard Amtrak's Acela or Adirondack. Best of all, you may choose between different travel styles for your Amtrak train trips, including independent and escorted journeys.

If you are looking for a weekend trip, Amtrak getaways are the perfect way to get a taste of a region. These packages last just a few days and include fantastic destinations like Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles and even national parks and Niagara Falls. Another way to experience the wonder of the United States is with a combination cruise and train trip. These tours allow travelers to begin their experience with time aboard an Amtrak train, such as the Coast Starlight, the California Zephyr or the Empire Builder, and later join a cruise ship to explore some of the most scenic waterways in the country. Contact an agent to learn how to make your travel dreams a reality.
