Rolling prairies, wide-open plains, and towering mountain peaks paint the picturesque backdrop as you explore America by rail. Add to that bustling metropolises, expansive national parks, and acclaimed historic attractions, and it is easy to see why the United States is the perfect destination for train vacations. Traveling aboard Amtrak trains, enjoy routes that take you from Chicago to the East Coast or the West, traveling cross country to explore the best this land has to offer.
The beauty of taking a train across America is that your adventure begins the moment you board the train. Settle into your cozy onboard accommodations and leave the driving to someone else as you travel deep into the unspoiled natural beauty of the U.S.A. Admire the passing scenery from your seat or the train’s observation lounge. Enjoy a hot meal in the dining car or the café as the train crisscrosses the country. While many of our independent train tours and escorted train tours include overnight train rides aboard iconic long-distance trains, there is a great selection of rail vacation packages that solely feature excursions aboard day trains. These passenger trains are just as historic and include scenic trains, such as the Grand Canyon Railway, Colorado’s Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, and New England’s Cape Cod Central Railroad.
Each train vacation in America incorporates iconic train journeys into a well-planned itinerary that also includes visits to popular destinations, comprehensive sightseeing, incredible routes, and more. Choose from train trips in Alaska, popular Coast to Coast vacations, fall foliage tours, or visits to America’s national parks by train. You may select vacations with luxury train accommodations in sleeper cars or from an array of one-way journeys. With more than 100 vacations in the United States alone, you are sure to find the perfect itinerary.
