Envelop yourself in one of nature’s most delightful annual events: America’s fall foliage season. And what better way to experience it than with a fall foliage train tour, where the only thing more brilliant than the fall colors are the scenic trains that take you through these dazzling displays of nature. With a wide variety of rail vacations from which to choose, the question is not how to see the vivid colors but where. Each region in the United States presents its own unique combination of autumn hues, so no two fall color tours are alike.
New England fall foliage tours take travelers through impressive destinations like Boston, MA; Newport, RI; Montpelier, VT; North Conway, NH, and Bath, ME aboard amazing rail lines, including the Cape Cod Central Railroad, the Conway Scenic Railroad, the Mt. Washington Cog Railway and the Essex Steam Train. Crimson, gold and orange leaves pave the way for each journey, which includes a mixture of history and sightseeing through nature. These fall tours may also venture out of the U.S. to Canada, exploring scenic destinations from Quebec City and Montreal to the lovely Maritime region.
Travelers may select from fall tours to other parts of the country, as well. Marvel at the warm hues of the Great Smoky Mountains while traveling through Tennessee or explore the colors of the Allegheny Mountains in Maryland and the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia while learning about the birth of railroading in America. Your foliage tour may even take you through the Great Lakes region to places like Door County, Wisconsin, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where the gold and orange colors of fall beckon. No matter which region you choose, each thoughtful itinerary makes all of your travel dreams come true.
