If you’re a mountain traveler who loves taking trains, then check out Amtrak’s new connections to U.S. National Parks.
Amtrak has launched the new website Amtraktoparks.com, which is designed to show travelers how they can travel by train to visit the country’s national parks.
Train travelers can find the nearest Amtrak route to the featured national park sites which are accessible via public transportation from an Amtrak station. Users can search based on geographic location and personal interests ranging from Monuments/Memorials, Water Activities to Revolutionary History. Camping site and hotel information and booking rail travel is also available on the site.
Says Dean Reeder, national tourism director, National Park Service:
“Passenger rail and national parks have rolled through history in tandem since the 1880s. By facilitating visitor access to the many wondrous experiences available in many of our nation’s parks, Amtrak helps us advance the values of sustainable tourism.”
