The USA’s Top 5 National Parks... and how to get to them by train!

Uncategorized | January 17, 2017

Last year was a record-setting year for visits to National Parks in the US. In total, some 325 million eager explorers dusted off their cameras and immersed themselves in the overwhelming natural beauty of some of the world’s most magnificent corners. That was the 3rd year in a row the record has been broken and, with National Parks consistently ranking amongst our customers’ favorite trips, we can certianly see what all the fuss is about. The USA is a treasure-trove of natural beauty; extensive, diverse, awe-inspiring – and just waiting to be discovered. Of course, with surroundings so spectacular, there’s really only one way to arrive! Once you touch down across the pond, take to the rails and don’t miss a second of scenery! One of our favorite things about these national parks is they’re often just a quick hop from the train stations – so you can whiz through magnificent landscapes on your way towards even more magnificent landscapes. What better way to whet your appetite? Pens and bucket lists at the ready, here are our top 5 picks of the most beautiful spots in America!
