Marvel at the Canadian mountains or hop the big cities of America
Rail played a huge part in shaping America with a transcontinental railroad linking coast to coast and opening the west to new settlers. USA train travel was a booming industry which saw towns pop up along the line as the country grew at an astonishing rate. Today, there is still a place for the classic charm of the rail, taking passengers across North America from the buzz of capital cities to the alpine ambience of the Canadian Rockies. See the United States from a different point of view with an Amtrak USA Rail Pass where you can choose 15 days, 30 days or 45 days of travel. Over 500 destinations along the Amtrak route spanning 46 countries makes rail arguably the easiest way to see America at your leisure.
