National Park Vacations

America's National Parks

America's national parks were born of the idea to protect the country's natural wonders for all to enjoy. The country's first national park, Yellowstone, was established in 1872, and today, the United States is home to 58 national parks, each showcasing spectacular treasures. A visit to Yellowstone brings fumaroles, geysers, and sparkling lakes. At Yosemite in California, towering ancient trees paint a lush scene against stoic mountains. Arches National Park brings amazing sandstone arches and colorful rock formations, while Grand Canyon National Park offers breathtaking vistas of sweeping red canyon plunging deep into the earth. The tallest mountain in the United States, Mt. Denali, sits proudly amongst the vast landscape of Denali National Park. And this is just a sampling of the best national parks; each park brings its own splendor and vast expanses of land that are home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna.

For a unique vacation in the USA, visit one or more of these national parks by train. Some of the country's most popular parks, such as Glacier National Park and Grand Canyon National Park, are situated along iconic rail routes that offer daily service to these must-see destinations. Other parks, including Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Teton, and Arches, are easily accessible by bus, car or motorcoach.

Vacations By Rail offers nearly 50 vacation packages that highlight these fantastic destinations. Perfect for families, for seniors and for adventurers of all walks of life, national park vacations take many forms. Select from escorted tours that are guided by tour managers brimming with information about the railroads and parks that lie ahead, or embark on a rail-drive expedition that combines the romance of rail travel with a self-guided road trip. Select packages even include cruise segments that present protected lands and scenic waterways from a floating vantage point.

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.

“The trip was excellent and our tour guide, Beth Mohan, and bus driver, Joe Hall, were fantastic. When the weather canceled our tram ride up the mountain, Beth had an alternative at sea Aquarium which was lovely. Especially loved watching the puffins. Wish the rail company had told us the bus was going everywhere with us with our luggage as the train restrictions on size made it difficult and unable to pack some necessities like a pillow. I thought the train would be my favorite but the tour boat out into the sound was even more impressive getting up close to the glaciers and seeing other animals. Would definitely reommend this trip to others.

“This was a wonderful trip - Julie Wilkes our guide went above and beyond to make sure we saw all important sites. Everywhere we stayed was great! The food was also great. The train ride was fun and Julie made sure we were well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who likes to be on the go and experience as much as possible. We heard Am Track was updating their sleeping cars which would interest us as we took this trip in coach. My one recommendation for this trip would be to take the extra day at Glacier and add it to the time spent in Yellowstone - could definitely use more time there. Also the eating situation at the Canyon Lodge was the worst of any meal situations. Hopefully they will be able to improve this. All in all a great trip - such beautiful parks hard to complain.
