Exploring USA through the Window of a Train
What’s the most fabulous way to see America? Have you considered exploring USA through the window of a train? The railway system of this country is rather hidden and even Americans barely know that it’s possible to travel around the whole USA by rail! In fact, that can be really fun and exciting way to discover North America!
If you’re US citizen, but also if you’re from abroad, you are probably aware of all the reasons to explore this huge, diverse and enticing country. With its plains, prairies, mountain peaks, vibrant metropolises, historic sites, huge and breathtaking natural parks and other attractions, America is a perfect destination for almost anyone. One of the best ways to see and discover this marvelous country is by train.
Once you step aboard the train, the magical American railroad travel starts. Sometimes you need to unwind your mind and soul and relax your whole body, so why would you drive while on a vacation? Instead, you should settle into comfy accommodations on-board and let other “drive” you deep into the mesmerizing nature. You can enjoy the passing scenery either from the lounge or from your own seat while having a meal, reading a book or listening to music. It’s possible to travel by night, but if you prefer so, there’s a chance of traveling solely by day trains. Vintage and scenic trains such as New England’s Cape Cod Central Railroad, Grand Canyon Railway or Durango & Silverton Railway are great options for daily excursions by train too.
If you’ve set your heart on a train vacation, make sure it includes iconic train journeys into its itinerary as well as visits to important tourist destinations. You can visit national parks of US by train, opt for a popular Coast to Coast train vacation, but you can also book a rail trip in Alaska etc. There’s a wide range of available train vacation offers nowadays, so I’m sure you’ll find the one that works best for you.
