Scenic Train Rides in Each State

The clichéd old adage “it’s not about the destination, but the journey” rings especially true when it comes to train travel.

Easily the best part of traveling by train is looking out the window and staring at the passing landscapes. Whether you’re a tourist exploring a new region or a commuter getting to and from work, you can catch the country’s natural beauty aboard one of the many trains crisscrossing the United States.

From Mount Rushmore to Miami Beach, every state has awe-inspiring landscapes and beautiful landmarks to enjoy by train.

Many of the trains are in or provide very scenic views of state parks and natural areas across the country.
