Great American Cities Rail Tour
Experience not one but four of America's most exciting and vibrant cities on this 8 day Rail Tour.
- New York City
Welcome to Boston! At Logan International Airport, you will be greeted by your local host and assisted with your hotel transfer. While in Boston experience the Freedom Trail, as it winds its way through 350 years of history. Stop at bustling Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. Visit Old Ironsides, the oldest ship in the US Navy. See the boats in the Public Gardens, or enjoy a whale watch cruise from Boston Harbor.
Depart this morning for "The Big Apple." Your AMTRAK train allows you to relax and enjoy the comfort and service of rail travel. New York, a mere rock of an island, is the nation's largest city and commercial centre. From Wall Street's stock exchange to the galleries of SoHo, the sparkling diamond district and the cobblestone streets in the South Street Seaport, New York has something for everyone. Take the ferry to Ellis Island and view the Statue of Liberty, which welcomed immigrants to the land of freedom. Explore the neighbourhoods, take in the bright lights of Broadway, shop on Fifth Avenue and eat your way through Chinatown, Little Italy or New York's famous deli's.
Welcome to Philadelphia! Explore this marvelous city, home to Independence National Park, with the Liberty Bell, Franklin Court and Independence Hall. Discover the city's many museums-from the Franklin Institute to the Rodin Museum; and from the unusual Mutter Museum of human anatomy to the world-class Musuem of Art; the City of Brotherly Love is endlessly eclectic. See, up close, the Liberty Bell, which marks the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence. Tread upon the floorboards where Betsy Ross stitched the American flag. Explore the historic Independence Hall, where the US was born. Stroll the bustling water-front at Penn's Landing, marking the site where William Penn, city founder, landed in 1682. This evening, enjoy fine dining at one of Philadelphia's famous eateries, or stroll lively South Street.
Depart today for Washington's history, power and spectacular beauty. Arrive in Union Station, restored to turn-of-the-century grandeur, and view the sights from your trolley tour.
