This fall, there is no better way to find fall views, than by rail. Grab your flannel shirts and follow along for Amtrak’s top train rides to see fall foliage.
Cowboy country meets autumn on the Heartland Flyer
Take a ride through the wild west and take in seasonal views from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City on the Heartland Flyer. The Heartland Flyer connects Oklahoma City to Fort Worth, TX daily and also connects travelers to the cowboy state of mind that lives on in the West. At Fort Worth, connections are available to Dallas, Chicago and San Antonio via the Texas Eagle
Catch the best views of New England on the Vermonter
As its name suggests, the Vermonter takes riders through maple country in the heart of New England. The Vermonter offers service between Washington, DC and St. Albans in northern Vermont. Your journey north on the Vermonter begins in DC and runs through New York City to Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. Vermont is renowned for the longest ski season in the East. Its world-famous ski resorts include Killington, Mount Snow, Smugglers’ Notch, Stowe, Sugarbush and Stratton. Experience the Green Mountain State’s scenic vistas and New England charm any time of the year. If you’re a native Vermonter, treat yourself to a trip southward to one of the great cities of the eastern United States. New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC, are all stops on the Vermonter’s daily journey south. Find similar views on the Ethan Allen Express, Adirondack, and Maple Leaf routes in the same region!
Find the true meaning of fall in New York with the Empire Service
In the city, there aren’t many signs of fall. With service from New York to Niagara Falls, there is no better way to adventure out of the everyday gridlock than with Amtrak’s Empire Service! With frequent daily trains between NYC and Albany (and others that continue to Buffalo and Niagara Falls), business and leisure travel has never been easier. You can do almost anything in New York City, but when it’s time to get out in the country, head north to the Hudson River Valley for a vacation in wine country. Take the Empire Service to the Finger Lakes region or continue all the way to Buffalo and Niagara Falls.
Experience fall in the South on the Silver Service
With a route from New York to Miami, the Silver Service will take you through the best views in the South! Welcome aboard the Silver Meteor, Silver Star and Palmetto — a journey between exciting Northeast cityscapes, the Deep South’s Civil War history, and the sights and sounds of Florida’s beaches, cities and family attractions. Onboard, you will witness scenery not accessible by other modes of transportation while experiencing the unique comfort and relaxation of rail travel.
