Amtrak holds the key to opening up the whole of the USA, serving over 500 destinations in 46 States and 3 Canadian Provinces. From the busy vibrant cities to the mountains and the sea, you can experience unforgettable scenery including some that can only be seen by train as you criss-cross your way across America. Hop on one of the legendary train routes such as the Empire Builder® that operates between Chicago and Seattle/Portland, following parts of the original trail forged by explorers Lewis and Clark. Travel alongside the Mississippi River, cross the North Dakota plains, through "Big Sky Country" Montana and pass by Glacier National Park with the panoramic windows of the Sightseeing Lounge giving you the best seats in the house. With the choice of point to point fares, overnight services and Amtrak Rail Passes, planning is made easy. AMTRAK POINT TO POINT SERVICES If you just want to visit 1 or 2 cities, point to point regional tickets may be all that is required. A choice of standard or business class seating is available as well as sleeper tickets for the overnighters. Pre-book your seat before you leave to avoid disappointment. Between New York and/ or Boston, Washington DC or Philadelphia, try out the superior comfort and speed of the Acela Express with a choice of first or business class reserved seats. AMTRAK RAIL PASSES When you want to travel from State to State or stop at a lot of places within one State, the USA Rail Pass gets you around the USA with ease and complete access to the Amtrak network. Three pass types are available with varying number of segments and days for the entire USA. On the long overnight journeys purchase, at additional cost, a sleeping option of Roomette or Bedroom for the sector required. The Bedroom option has private enclosed restroom.
