An east coast vacation is steeped in American heritage. Trace the country’s historic roots on rail vacations to Boston; New York City; and Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Or, visit the nation’s capital, Washington, DC; colonial Williamsburg, and the Jamestown Settlement. Continue south and explore the classic Low Country city of Charleston; historic Savannah, Georgia’s first city founded in 1733; Jacksonville; and, tranquil St. Augustine.
During the autumn season, east coast tours showcase New England’s fall foliage with scenic rail excursions and lake cruises into the heart of colorful scenery and visits to quintessential New England sights like Boston’s Freedom Trail, Franconia Notch State Park, New Hampshire’s White Mountains, the Mark Twain Home, Mystic Seaport and Martha’s Vineyard.
