Convenient Daily Trips from the Big Apple to the Big Easy

With service from New York City to New Orleans, the Crescent gives travelers a unique window to the beauty and heritage of the American South. You can tour Monticello or enjoy a wine tasting in the charming Virginia college town of Charlottesville. Or enjoy a stroll through the vibrant shopping and dining scene of Underground Atlanta. As you travel further south, you'll reach New Orleans, where you never run out of things to do. From jazz clubs to Cajun restaurants to Mississippi riverboat rides, the city was simply built to entertain.

When you travel on the Crescent, you can choose a wide, comfortable reserved coach seat or sleeping accommodations on our comfortable Viewliner trains. Enjoy a hot dinner in the Dining Car, and mingle with your fellow travelers in the Lounge Car.

Trails & Rails - Heritage Appreciation On Board

Trails & Rails Logo

An innovative partnership program between the National Park Service and Amtrak, the Trails & Rails program provides Amtrak passengers with educational opportunities to foster an appreciation of a selected region's natural and cultural heritage and renews the long tradition of associating railroads with National Parks.

The Crescent offers a Trails & Rails program operating from Atlanta, Georgia to New Orleans, Louisiana and is operated by staff and volunteers of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park.
