All Aboard for a Family Trip by Train

If you're looking for a family vacation idea, look no further

Explore America with Amtrak. On the train, your family will have plenty of room to spread out and relax. Not to mention a spectacular view of America's rolling prairies, towering mountains, expansive national parks and bustling metropolises. And as always, kids ages 2 - 12 ride half off and infants ride free. Come aboard. America is waiting.

Enjoy Many Onboard Amenities

Train travel is all about appreciating the beauty outside and relishing the comforts within. Once onboard, take in the scenery from the Sightseer Lounge, play a board game with the kids or turn to a more traditional form of entertainment: conversation.

Plus, most of our overnight trains feature Dining cars that serve three meals a day, with full menus and table service. If you're looking for lighter fare, grab a bite to eat or a drink in the Cafe car.

You can also reserve Sleeping car accommodations and let the gentle rhythms of the train sway you to sleep. It's the best way to arrive at your destination rested and ready to go.
