Rail & Drive Vacations

Rail-drive vacations provide a scenic and efficient way to see the country in one well-planned itinerary. Travel long-distances by train, letting one of the country's legendary overnight trains take on the miles as you settle in for a relaxing trip between metropolises. Visit smaller towns and scenic sights by car, driving along scenic highways or local byways at your own pace, stopping to take in the sights from scenic overlooks or visit quaint communities along your route.

Rail-Drive vacations can combine travel aboard the USA's acclaimed Coast Starlight, California Zephyr, Southwest Chief, or Lake Shore Limited trains with visits to popular regions in the West, Southwest and East Coast. Visit California's coastal communities or Northern California's wine country. Follow the call of the colorful southwest with stays in New Mexico and southern Colorado. Or, uncover the history of early America in New England.

“The package put together by Vacations By Rail went above and beyond what I could have done on my own. They really considered logistics when booking overnight hotels and rental car pick up/drop off. Overall as our first experience with long distance rail travel, I am very happy we chose Vacations By Rail.

“We were always expected and welcomed with each of our reservations and everything went according to plan. Some idea of how long the drive was from one destination to the next would have been helpful during the driving leg of our excursion.

“Service was great. Three folks taking care of our car were really good. Food was pretty good. Good mix of tour guide" and downtime. Understand the need for the very early morning start times, but even with that, it would have been nice to arrive at the station in the evening at an earlier time."
