Amtrak's Downeaster

Venture along the Atlantic coastline and charming New England cities aboard Amtrak's Downeaster. One hundred forty-five miles of spectacular scenes lie ahead as the train moves through Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts multiple times a day throughout the year. This route opens a world of travel possibilities, allowing passengers to leave cars behind and soak in the colonial ambiance that can only be found in this part of the United States.

It takes under four hours to travel between bookend destinations, with the train making ten stops along the way and traveling at a speed of approximately 79 miles per hour. The journey takes passengers through historic destinations that brim with arts, culture, and old-world charms. Most of the stations along the way are owned and operated by the local municipalities and are within convenient walking distance of attractions of all types. Passengers enjoy access to those cities and towns that frame the Atlantic, such as Portland, Old Orchard Beach, and Wells in Maine and Boston, Massachusetts.

Guests may select from two service classes for the journey, Coach, and Business, both of which enjoy free Wi-Fi Internet. Refreshments are abundant in the Downeaster Café. Guests may purchase light meals, snacks, and beverages. Guests may take these refreshments back to their seats, so none of the magnificent scenery goes unseen.

With its scenic route that dates to the days of the Boston & Maine Railroad and its efficient operations, the Downeaster is the premier way to see the intricacies of the region.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through New England. Joe Royle, our tour guide, was very informative, accommodating and entertaining. Joe, our motor coach driver was very experienced and did an excellent job throughout the trip. We highly recommend this beautiful scenic trip especially in the fall to other travelers.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our tour director, Mary was excellent. She did a very good job of improvising when things didn't go according to planned.
