The True South Lies Just Outside Your Palmetto Train Window

As you take the Palmetto from New York City to Savannah, GA, you'll be treated to a unique picture of the American South. Stop along the way to explore the charms of Richmond, VA, and tour the antebellum homes of Charleston, SC. In Savannah, you can wander the 22 squares that dot the city's historic downtown or stroll the beach of nearby Tybee Island. No matter what you decide to do and see, you'll want to return soon to experience more of the South's history and personality.
