Tour US Historic Train Stations This Summer
“The station was a gateway to transport. It was a jumping-off point and the place of arrival. It was an emotional focal point, where many people saw a city for the first time or hugged a loved one before they traveled afar or upon arrival after years away.” Brian Solomon, author of Railway Depots, Stations, and Terminals
Summer vacations with travel this year? Yes, please! We know how excited everyone is feeling as life slowly returns to a faster pace and folks can visit with friends and family after a long year of living in a quarantined world. Join EverGreene on a train ride adventure across the United States! Our tour departs from the West Coast traveling to the East Coast over the course of June through August 2021.
