When you travel North America by train, getting there is half the fun. AAA and Amtrak Vacations provide hundreds of trips to top destinations coast-to-coast, with plenty of legroom, spectacular views and unique dining.
Any trip can be customized to suit your travel needs: Start your vacation from your local train station. Pick your hotels and your sleeping accommodations aboard the train—from coach to a private bedroom with its own bathroom. Add nights at a destination so you can see family or a few extra sites. You can even travel to your final destination by train, then fly home (or vice versa).
AAA Members get $50 off Amtrak packages of five nights or longer, plus $100 toward your next independent rail journey that visits three or more destinations.
Grand national parks: Explore three of the American West’s most majestic national parks—Yosemite, Glacier and Yellowstone—on this 15-day rail excursion. Among the highlights: Yellowstone’s mighty Old Faithful geyser, Yosemite’s towering El Capitan and Glacier’s scenic Going-to-the-Sun Road. Along the way, you’ll spend some nights in the parks’ iconic lodges, which are often difficult to book on your own, and stop in cities like San Francisco and Seattle. You’ll have plenty of time to visit must-see sites, like San Francisco’s Pier 39 and Seattle’s Space Needle.
Washington, D.C., getaway: Take in the history and excitement of our nation’s capital on this four-day vacation. Spend your days exploring the city’s monuments, memorials and museums on this hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour—plus, get free admission to the International Spy Museum. At night, experience a different side of D.C. on a Monuments by Moonlight tour. There’s nothing quite like seeing the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial and others aglow for the evening.
