After a few weeks of slightly declining gasoline prices, they are beginning to rise again. 

That is putting a big crimp into summer vacation planning this year. But, there is an alternative to spending your children's inheritance on gasoline or diesel fuels. 

According to TravelAwaits, Amtrak has vacations that include train travel and national parks.

If you want to visit a national park this summer but you’re concerned about rising gas prices and traffic, Amtrak might just have the solution you need.

Amtrak Vacations provides passenger railroad service to national parks so you can relax and take in the scenery with family or friends. Plus, all of the national park itineraries may be customized to suit your preferences — including origin city, trip length, and even budget.

For example, two years ago, I took the Southwest Chief from Gallup, New Mexico to California. The Southwest Chief is the train to take to visit Grand Canyon National Park.

“Traveling on-board the Southwest Chief and the Grand Canyon Railway to one of the seven wonders of the natural world is certainly a bucket list experience like no other,” Amtrak explains. “Known as ‘the most spectacular gorge in the world,’ the Grand Canyon is one of those places that stays with you long after you return home from vacation.” 

This 5-day adventure begins and ends in Los Angeles.
