Global Vacation Ventures knows that fall is one of the best seasons for the year for traveling. With lower travel rates, cheaper accommodations, beautiful scenery and cooler temperatures, there are an endless amount of options for a fall getaway. This autumn, the concierge country club travel agency of Global Vacation Ventures urges travelers to consider taking a ride on one of these splendid train trips across the U.S.
1. Napa Valley Wine Train, California
This spectacular wine train winds through the gorgeous landscape of Napa Valley while providing guests with a delicious lunch and dinner. Global Vacation Ventures highly recommends taking a trip during the afternoon so that riders can experience Napa at sunset while sipping on some of the region’s best wines.
2. Cape Cod Central Railroad, Massachusetts
New England is well known for being one of the most beautiful and memorable places to visit during the fall. One of the best ways to truly experience everything this region of the United States has to offer is by riding the Cape Cod Central Railroad. This train winds through Cape Cod’s woodlands, salt marshes, cranberry bogs and even goes past the Cape Cod Canal. Even better, Global Vacation Ventures adds that riders can select a lunch, dinner or Sunday “Yankee Clipper Brunch” so that they can enjoy both delicious food and breathtaking scenery.
3. Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, Ohio
Take a step into the past by riding on this historic railroad that has been in operation since 1972. Riders on this train can be transported in cars that are from the 1920s, ‘30s, ‘50s and ‘70s. As a non-profit this railway is entirely operated by volunteers so make sure to make a donation to keep the railway running.
4. Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Colorado
Climb to the top of Pikes Peak on the highest cog railway in the Northern Hemisphere. Starting at the base of one of America’s most beloved mountains, the Cog Railway winds its way up 14,115 feet to the summit where travelers can enjoy a donut from the highest donut shop in the world.
5. Adirondack Scenic Railroad, New York
Far from all of the hustle and bustle of New York City is the Adirondack Scenic Railroad located in upstate New York. The train passes by lakes and even makes stops at some of the most scenic locations along the way.
