Five Spring Break Destinations

Yes, many of you in the Midwest and Northeast have snow mounds staring at you through the window. And yes, hearing the bird chirp and seeing the flowers bloom seems forever away. But we’re here to help you rally. Spring break is a’coming for students, families and adults who need some sunshine. Don’t wait until it’s too late to travel. Check our list of Amtrak cities to spring break it to. Come with us and leave winter in rear view mirror. Let’s ride!

Served by our Crescent route, a trip to The A is always a good thing. World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, the Hawks playoff games (yes they’ll be in it) and before you know it Braves games too. Why wouldn’t you want to explore Atlanta? Need more reasons to book? Here goes, Stone Mountain, touring the CNN Newsroom and visiting the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. Atlanta has a little bit for everyone.

New Orleans
NOLA, is easily one of the best party cities in the country and we have three routes that can take you there. But if live music and hurricanes on Bourbon Street isn’t up your alley, that’s fine because, N’awlins has plenty of other fun to get into. Don’t take our word for it, just listen to Mark Romig, a native New Orleanian, and the President and Chief Executive Officer of the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC), the city’s official leisure travel promotion agency. He gives you all of the best spots to visit.

Theme parks aside, Orlando is a great place for some R&R this spring. Tons of hotel options for spa days, pools perfect for cocktail consumption and afternoon naps and night life. Then there’s golfing, brewery tours and museums. Don’t let Mickey be the only site you seen when you head to Orlando. Take our Auto Train and explore more.

Pack it all in a long weekend or take your time and enjoy a full week, but get ready to discover all PDX has to offer. Portland local Ashley told us all about the places to go and Molly gave us her five essential tips for a visit to her hometown, so you your Portlandia to-do list should be pretty stocked. Just one more tip from us, book early so you can save big!

San Diego
When we think of visiting San Diego we don’t think of the Channel 4 news team. All we can think about is fish tacos, perfect weather and beach time. Honestly, it’s almost the perfect spot for a spring break reset. No snow, laid back and great food. Need some tips on where to go and what to eat?
