“Rail travel is becoming more popular with families, especially three generations traveling together,” according to Nancy Nelson-Duac, Curator of the Good Stuff for theFamilyTravelFiles.com. ”Rail travel offers parents and grandparents an easy way to transition from hectic daily schedules to vacation mode. It provides an effortless way to make the most of travel time together,” she explains.

Hot summer family vacations by train include travel deals, discount offers and savings on Amtrak, BritRail, Eurail, RailItalia, ScotRail, and ViaRail. No two family rail adventures need ever be the same.

Amtrak has more than a dozen ways to create a family rail adventure. Best ideas include taking the kids by train to Yosemite, riding the rails to the rim of the Grand Canyon, visiting Glacier National Park by rail or combining Amtrak tickets with a CityPASS in Chicago for a terrific urban family adventure.

Summer in Scotland is always magical and ScotRail makes it more affordable with the “Kids Ride Free” program which provides not just free travel for children younger than 15 years of age but also have a slew of discounts at the most popular summer attractions throughout the country including Edinburgh Zoo, National Wallace Monument, and Highland Wildlife Park.
