Agents are pointed to US rail family breaks

Vacations By Rail offers family-friendly rail ideas

A holiday by rail gives families a chance to take a break from routine and reconnect with each other, the Chicago-based company Vacations By Rail says. It is offering a number of new opportunities in independent train vacations, escorted rail tours and luxury journeys to destinations in North America, in particular to families, such as the six-day Grand Canyon Rails to the Rim Adventure, Christmas in the Rockies or America Coast to Coast.
“A rail vacation is unique in that it gives families a real opportunity to admire the cities and landscapes through which they are traveling, while truly appreciating each other’s company,” says Todd Powell, Vacations By Rail’s president, who adds that train travel gets rid of the worries of flying or driving. “The convenience factor is enormous. There is no need to stop for meals or overnight accommodations. It’s all on the train.”
