Experience Fall Foliage At It’s Best Aboard The Great Dome Car

The Great Dome CarLooking for a unique way to experience the splendor of Upstate New York’s fall foliage? We’ve got the perfect answer with the return of the Great Dome car to the Adirondack service for a six-week run during the heart of leaf peeping season!

If you’re in the region between Sept. 25 and Nov. 4 or just an avid leaf peeper looking for an adventure, you should book your tickets now.

The Great Dome is the only car of its kind in the entire Amtrak fleet. The awesome car features an upper level with windows on all sides (and the roof!) to provide you panoramic views of the autumn landscape, breathtaking glimpses of the Hudson River and Lake Champlain and views of the Adirondack Mountains between Albany and Montreal. Seriously, is there anything on Earth that sounds more relaxing?

Now for the insider info: There is no additional charge for riding the Adirondack service during this period and seating in the Great Dome car is unreserved. To book tickets for the train, simply use the “Buy Tickets” box to the right of this post. You can take advantage of the I Love NY 15 percent discount off the regular (full) adult rail fare, valid for sale through May 2015. Advance reservations are required. In addition, up to 2 children ages 2-12 may accompany each adult at half the discounted rail fare.
