From the Capital of Government to the Capital of Tourism, enjoy a one day trip by rail from Washington DC to New York including sightseeing, dining, and shopping.
What to Expect
Enjoy a day in New York by taking the railroad: leave the tolls, gas, and traffic problems at home while you relax aboard an Amtrak Regional train. Take a nap on the comfortable roomy seats or stop in at the Café Car and before you know it you'll be in Pennsylvania Station, New York.
With a mid morning arrival, its just a few blocks to pick up your included tickets for a memorable double decker hop on hop off tour of New York and Brooklyn. Pick from a variety of loop tours. Stay on the bus or hop off at the stop of your choice. There is something to do at nearly every stop. The museums, observatories, theaters, zoos, boat rides are all incredibly enjoyable. Children and adults will enjoy the famed WWII aircraft carrier, INTREPID, and its new space shuttle exhibits or experience the new One World Trade Center Observatory with a stop at the 9/11 Memorial Pool. A short walk from there is the American Indian Museum and Fraunces Tavern - which served as George Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War.
Stop in front of the Stock Exchange and across the street at the historic Federal Hall built as a Customs House in 1842 but was the earlier site of George Washington's inauguration as the first President of the United States.
With all this touring you'll be ready for a hearty lunch - enjoy a fun filled experience with a meal at the Hard Rock Café or a $20.00 credit at Planet Hollywood.. From Times Square it's just a few blocks to the original MACY's flagship store and maybe some souvenirs. With tired feet walk just 3 blocks to Pennsylvania Station for the return trip to Union Station, Washington DC.
