United States Rail Holidays

 

The USA is a country of immense size and exceptional beauty. It is over three thousand miles from New York to San Francisco and more than that from Miami to Seattle. Imagine all the extraordinary places between the dual coasts that await you in this vast land. Soaring skyscraper cities and pretty white-fenced towns, snow-capped mountains, desolate prairies and glistening lakes; the spacious and beautiful national parks, the seemingly endless deserts, the extraordinary wildlife, the delicious varieties of food, the glittering oceans, welcoming beaches and perfect sunsets.

The excitement begins as you walk down the platform toward your carriage. The conductor greets you with a smile and a ‘Welcome aboard.’ You settle into your seat or reserved accommodation and watch the scenery unfold as the train speeds toward your destination. Perhaps visit the glass-covered observation car or enjoy a delicious meal in the dining car. It’s a smile per mile.

Each of our rail holidays incorporates an itinerary that explores the best America has to offer. There are visits to national parks, foliage tours in New England in the autumn, rail journeys from coast to coast through the mighty Rockies or shorter holidays with visits to the sights and history of the east coast.
