Pack your passport and glide beyond the hustle and bustle of New York City to Montreal on the relaxing Adirondack Line. A 10-hour total route, passengers depart from New York's Penn Station, traverse through the rolling Hudson Valley wine region and arrive in the French-speaking city of Montreal with its Gallic-influenced Canadian charm.
Highlights of this route include Port Kent, NY, and connecting service to Burlington, VT (a college town on Lake Champlain), Westport, NY (with connecting service to Lake Placid), and Saratoga Springs, NY (known for natural spas, outdoor concerts and horse racing).
Journey from the city of beignets, jazz, creole and Cajun cuisine to one best known for swimming pools, movie stars and palm trees via the Sunset Limited. This line, the longest-running U.S. route known by its original name, starts in New Orleans, LA, and ends in the heart of Los Angeles, CA. As one of Amtrak’s southernmost routes, its highlights along the 48-hour journey are sure to be vistas of the Mexican border and the Gulf Coast.
You can opt to stop off at notable waypoints along this route: Alpine, TX (Big Bend National Park), Maricopa, AZ (just outside of Phoenix), and Tucson, AZ (Saguaro National Park). Tap the National Park Service guides onboard for more information about the majestic parks that you see right outside the window as part of the new Trails and Rails program. You can only be "all aboard" three times a week when this 48-hour route is offered.
