Spring Vacations in USA

Spring Tours

Each year as the world awakens from its winter slumber and the chill begins to fade, intrepid travelers embark on their first escapes of the year, bound for warmer locales where sunny skies reign supreme and sweater weather is a thing of the past. In the United States, the nation's railways offer the perfect way to kick off the travel season.

There are beautiful places to visit in spring from coast to coast. Join a rail vacation aboard Amtrak's storied routes from New York City to San Francisco via Chicago. These cross-country trips take place aboard iconic overnight trains, such as the Lakeshore Limited and the California Zephyr, and give travelers a chance to see the subtle changes in the springtime landscape with each progressing mile.

Alternatively, spending your family spring break exploring the great American West opens the door to warm places to visit in April. Explore the colorful deserts of California and Nevada, or set your sights on Arizona and one of the country's most glorious landmarks, the Grand Canyon. There are train journeys along the stunning California coastline on the Coast Starlight and incredible vacations on the United States' first luxury train, Rocky Mountaineer, between Colorado and Utah.

The best springtime destinations are not limited to the West. Rather, vacationers can bask in warmer weather and immense history in the South. Aboard Amtrak's City of New Orleans, visit Memphis, then continue deep into the bayou to New Orleans. No matter where your spring rail vacation takes you, enjoy smaller crowds and the chance to greet the coming season in a new locale.
