Embark on a Winter Getaway

Getting away is always a good idea. And saving 50% when you bring someone along is an even better one. Whether you're visiting friends and family, heading to the nation's capital or down to the Big Easy, savings await you and your travel companion on two popular Amtrak routes.

Save Aboard the City of New Orleans

With daily trips between two of the most important musical capitals in America, it's as convenient as it is historic. No matter which direction you're travelling, either from the forests of Tennessee or the bayous of Louisiana, you'll enjoy a unique view of the American south along the way.

Save Aboard the Capitol Limited

To travel between Washington, DC, and Pittsburgh, PA, aboard the Capitol Limited is to journey through a bit of American history. At the Maryland and West Virginia border, you'll pass through the civil war town of Harper's Ferry at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. Or maybe you're a Steelers fan, in that case, head to Pittsburgh where Heinz Field is just a couple of blocks west of the station.

No matter where you board and no matter where you're headed, when you book early, Amtrak will help you and a companion travel aboard the City of New Orleans and the Capitol Limited for less this winter.
