Amtrak vacations combine the whimsy of train travel with a unique experience. Various packages merge comfortable train journeys with curated vacation experiences. You can look forward to a hassle-free trip, including accommodation, sightseeing and other activities. 

From exploring cities to taking scenic routes, you can choose a holiday that suits your budget and preferences, allowing you to enjoy the journey as much as the destination for a truly memorable getaway.

National Park Vacations 

Explore the natural beauty around you with train ride vacation packages that include transportation, meals, hotel stays and more. Whether it is the majestic Grand Canyon, the serene Smokey Mountains or any other iconic park, Amtrak will have an eco-friendly option, thanks to its 20% decrease in greenhouse emissions, to enhance your trip to one of our nation's great national parks. 

Some of the vacations include cruises, passes to major attractions and more. On routes that pass by national parks, you will often find feature guides which provide more information as part of the Trails & Rails Partnership Program with the National Parks Service. Popular parks to look out for include Joshua Tree National Park, Saguaro National Park, C & O Canal National Historical Park and more.

Rail Experiences

Whether it is a short trip or a cross-country undertaking, these multi-destination trips offer guided tours, hop-on, hop-off services and more, so you can explore the most amazing cities in one adventure. Amtrak journeys provide a comfortable and relaxed way of experiencing travel by railroad with spacious seats, more legroom and the companionship of certain pets onboard. One example of these rail trips is the Amtrak Empire Builder Rail Experience. It takes you on a panoramic round trip that follows the Empire Builder train's historic route, with overnight accommodations on the train and hotel stays over a week-long journey.

Independent Train Journeys

If you want to stay in the driver's seat of your plans, these vacation packages allow you to experience an uncensored trip. From the stunning coastlines of the Pacific Northwest to the historic charm of the East Coast, you have a relaxed option to discover the beauty and culture of America. You can decide where you go, which routes you want to take, how long you stay and more. You have the freedom to make changes to your itinerary on the go as you learn about new sights to see at various destinations. One option is to book one of the hop-on, hop-off tours you will find in many Amtrak travel plans. AAA and Amtrak take care of details such as dining, hotels and more, so you will still experience a hassle-free voyage.
