Get Away on Labor Day

Make the end of your summer memorable with a Labor Day Getaway

You may be looking forward fall and the cooler weather it will bring, but before you pack up your white jeans and flip flops, hop on a train to take one last summer trip. If you’re at a loss for ideas, never fear – we have a quick roundup of events you can train to this holiday weekend.

New York Harbor National Parks

If you’re looking for an East Coast adventure with a heavy helping of history, the New York Harbor National Parks make for the perfect destination. Avoid the trek from the airport into the city – just hop on one of our Amtrak trains in the Northeast Corridor and you’ll get dropped off smack dab in Midtown Manhattan. From there, you can easily navigate to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, and more.
