Southern US Train Trips

The southern states are known for deep history, antebellum architecture and, above all else, charm. Train vacations to the South can include packages that celebrate America's musical history with stays in cities like Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. In Nashville, experience the heart of country music at the legendary Grand Ole' Opry. Memphis offers a glimpse at the beginnings of rock 'n' roll at places like Sun Studios and Elvis's home, Graceland. Your Deep South tour itinerary may also include a New Orleans tour, where jazz notes fill the air of the French Quarter. Uncover breathtaking views from the South's scenic rail lines, visit historic properties and enjoy tours that bring these alluring cities to life.

Southern USA tours also take travelers to the Southwest, a region that is visually and culturally much different than the Deep South yet is a trove of natural and cultural treasures. Select train trips highlight special annual events, such as the Albuquerque Balloon Festival in New Mexico. Alternatively, other tours focus on landmark sights of the Southwest, like the Grand Canyon, one of the Natural Wonders of the World. In between these destinations, each city offers its own unique atmosphere, from the artist community of Santa Fe to the vintage Americana feel of Williams. A highlight of any visit to the region is a ride aboard the vintage rail cars of the Grand Canyon Railway, which takes visitors directly to the South Rim of one of the world's most incredible natural formations, the Grand Canyon.

A selection of rail and river cruise and train to ocean cruise tour packages are available to travelers, as well. These well-planned trips combine rail travel with a refreshing cruise- either aboard a restored steamboat down the Mississippi River to New Orleans or through the Panama Canal or Western Caribbean waters aboard a state-of-the-art ocean liner.
