Why take a vacation by rail?
We’re always advocates of taking the scenic route! With so much to see from the train windows on a rail vacation, getting to your destination is an experience unto itself. There's something classic and even romantic about taking the train - enjoy truly relaxing and taking in the scenery as you travel.
Say goodbye to long lines at airport security, early airport arrivals, and strict packing restrictions, or taking time to rent a car or deal with traffic. Plus, unlike most airports, train stations are usually located in the center of the cities they service. Forget long taxi transfers or bus journeys and arrive ready to hop off the train and into the middle of the action.
Say hello to turbulence-free rides and plenty of legroom! During your journey, feel free to stretch your legs and walk around! Many trains offer restaurant cars where you can sit and have a meal, or viewing cars with big windows where you can relax and watch the world go by.
Looking for a convenient package that you can customize just the way you want? Rail vacations are very flexible, and can be customized with your choice of dates, start and end points, additional destinations, extra hotel nights, and sightseeing options. Your rail vacation is tailored to your vacation dreams!
