Norwich-based specialty travel company Holidays By Rail offers an exciting array of escorted autumn train holidays across America featuring popular destinations including New England, the peaks and valleys of the Colorado Rockies, and America’s southwest. Fall holidays range from 8 to 15 days in length, many of which focus on New England’s annual fall foliage celebration.
Pairing excursions aboard scenic tourist trains with lake cruises and motorcoach travel, fall foliage holidays place travellers in the heart of the brilliant displays of nature. New for 2012 is Fall Colours, Scenic Trains & Cape Cod, a 10-day seasonal tour to Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut. Highlights include travel aboard the Maine Eastern Railroad, Conway Scenic Railroad, Cape Cod Central Railroad, and Amtrak’s Downeaster and Vermonter trains; three lake cruises; and, sightseeing in Boston, Old Sturbridge Village, Cape Cod National Seashore, and Provincetown. Departures beginning in Boston are 27 September and 4 October. Prices start at £1,379 land-only, per person based on double occupancy.
Also new in 2012 is the 8-day Colorado Rail Adventure featuring six scenic train excursions through Colorado’s breathtaking scenery including the renowned Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway, Pike’s Peak Cog Railway, and Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. One fall departure beginning and ending in Denver is available on 16 September. Prices start at £1,137 land-only, per person based on double occupancy.
“The autumn months are an ideal time to travel across America,” said Eric Hutchins, general manager of Holidays By Rail. “Temperatures are mild, the fall colours are vibrant, and crowds at many popular attractions have lessened.”
Travellers wishing to branch out on their own may consider a variety of well-planned unescorted train holidays across America available for departures through mid-October to popular cities across America including New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
