United States Tours

Traveling by train is a relaxing way to explore any country, and this is especially true for one as large as the United States.

Find a Train Tour

The Amtrak railway system connects many major cities to amazing destinations throughout the country. Amtrak offers escorted and independent packages that combine train travel, hotel accommodations, some meals and guided sightseeing into one bundled rate.

Along with multi-day train vacations, scenic day trips by rail are also available in many parts of the country. The Napa Valley Wine Train journeys through the famous wine region, while a number of trains explore Colorado and the Rocky Mountains, including the Georgetown Loop Railroad which passes through old gold and silver mines and the Pike's Peak Cog Railway, the highest railway in North America.

Whether you're looking to explore the Grand Canyon, visit California's redwoods by steam train or simply travel from one city to the next with a first-class view, there's likely to be a train for you.
