Family Vacation Packages

Turn the standard family road trip into a fun family rail trip. Your kid-friendly vacation begins the moment you step aboard the train. There is no need to worry about directions, meals, rest stops or where to spend the night; everything you need is aboard the train. Select from comfortable sleeping accommodations ranging from coach seats to private bedrooms, and spend the days watching the spectacular scenery pass from well-appointed lounge cars. During the train trip, enjoy delicious meals in the full-service dining car and bond over a board game or cards in the café car. 

Classic family vacation ideas include North America's national parks: Grand Canyon National Park, home to 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; and Yosemite National Park, where your family adventures can include being surrounded by some of the world's largest, most magnificent trees. Other popular destinations featured in family vacation packages include Chicago, which is often the beginning or endpoint for many long-distance rail journeys and is home to myriad museums, landmarks and attractions; New York City, an exciting place for kids, where you can see a Broadway show; and the nation's capital, Washington, DC. All of these locales are ideal for spring break getaways or summer vacations that the whole family will enjoy. For a real treat, head into the Canadian Rockies in the winter aboard VIA Rail's Canadian. The national parks found here are the perfect spots for grand adventures and spectacular seasonal family fun.

Leave the planning to the experts and embark on one of the best family vacations of your life with these diverse tour packages.

“Lodging, food on the train and the Red Bus Tour were great. Views were wonderful from the train. The roomette was a bit challenging since neither of us had taken one before. Just didn?t know exactly what to expect. Overall, loved the trip.
