New England Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage Train Rides

Fall colors and fantastic destinations throughout the East Coast and beyond come to life on fall foliage train tours. The best way to experience nature's greatest event, these rail vacations cruise through a backdrop of gold, rust and crimson as scenic trains whisk travelers to some of the United States' premier destinations for leaf peeping. Admire the changing hues as you travel aboard heritage and Amtrak train lines and enjoy an up-close look at the scenery with coach tours and picturesque lake cruises.

Select from a variety of fall foliage trips that highlight colorful destinations through sightseeing tours and captivating excursions. Immerse yourself in the autumnal beauty of the Midwest in places like Northern Michigan, where guests enjoy the sights of Mackinac Island and iconic Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Door County, WI, famous for its spectacular Lake Michigan scenery and endless rural expanses. Escorted fall leaf tours may also take travelers to the stunning Smoky Mountains, stopping in beloved cities in both Tennessee and North Carolina. There are also packages that highlight New England in the fall, and these journeys include renowned regional destinations such as Mark Twain's childhood home, Mystic Seaport, Martha's Vineyard and Hyannis. New England fall foliage tours may include guided tours in cities like Boston or scenic bus tours along iconic byways, like the Kancamagus Highway. Some of the nation's most picturesque heritage railways are also found in New England, such as the Conway Scenic Railway in New Hampshire, which travels through the colorful peaks of the White Mountains.

Ranging from 6 to 11 days, Vacation By Rail's expertly crafted fall foliage tours present the endless beauty of America in autumn.

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.

“Mike the tour guide, and manny the bus driver were professional, thoughtful, and ready to assist those of us on the tour. You might consider deleting one, or more sites to allow us all more time at the other stops. I’d recommend building into the tour more down time.
