Family Train Vacations

Turn the family road trip into the family rail trip. Your vacation begins the minute you step aboard the train. There’s no need to worry about directions, meals, rest stops, or where to spend the night. Everything you need is aboard the train from comfortable sleeping accommodations and lounge cars offering panoramic views of spectacular scenery to a full-service dining car and a café car perfect for bonding with the family over a board game or cards. 

Classic family rail vacations include popular destinations like the one of the Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon; Glacier National Park for an excursion along one of the world’s most famous roadways, the Going-to-the-Sun Road, aboard vintage red Jammer buses; Chicago, the beginning and end point for many long-distance rail journeys and home to many fantastic museums, landmarks and attractions; New York City to see a Broadway show; and, a visit to the nation’s capital, Washington, DC.
