Amtrak Family Vacation

Amtrak offers a unique way to relax and journey the country for families, couples and those traveling solo. The trains offer plenty of legroom, a chance to kick back and enjoy the view, and features a unique dining experience, too.

Amtrak offers more than 30 destinations in the continental United States and Canada, and one of their travel specialists can help put together a customized travel package just for you.

Family Adventures

It may surprise you to learn Amtrak offers adventures that allow the entire family to explore and share unforgettable memories. Family adventure vacations include some of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S. and Canada.

Amtrak family adventure travel includes hotel/train accommodations, sightseeing tours, entertainment, and other unique experiences. Whether you want to explore the Grand Canyon or experience Niagra Falls, Amtrak can make it happen without all the driving.

Sleeping Accommodations

Today, Amtrak trains traveling on long-distance routes provide sleeping accommodations on either two-level Superliners or one-level Viewliner trains. Either one includes bedrooms – some with private bathrooms and others with shared public restrooms.

Superliners Are No Ordinary Train

The upper level of Superliner trains offers a variety of rooms including bedrooms, bedroom suites, toilet facilities and roomettes. Roomettes are perfect for one or two passengers, and feature comfy reclining seats beside a large picture window. At night the seats convert to a fold-down bed. Roomettes can also be located on the first floor of a Superliner.

Lower levels provide a number of different room configurations including family bedrooms and a shower and changing room. Family bedrooms incorporate the entire width of the train car and feature two picture windows.

Sleeping arrangements include two reclining seats (such as in the roomettes), plus the sofa converts to a sleeper and two upper berths fold down into adult-sized berths and two child-size berths.

Hotel Accommodations

Amtrak offers the perfect solution to enjoy time with your family as you travel. Visit their website to decide on the best vacation package and route to get you to where you want to go. Once you reach your destination, Amtrak packages also offer a selection of hotels to fit every budget, along with sightseeing opportunities like museums, amusement parks and more.
