Whether you want to head to New York City, the Adirondacks, or all the way up to Niagara Falls, New York By Rail is the ultimate guide to planning your Amtrak trip in the Empire State, and parts of Vermont and Canada, too!

Broken down into nine distinct regions, this insider’s guide gives you tips on how to make the most of your Amtrak trip, from the planning process all the way up to the time you step onto the train. Read about where to stay and what to do, from museums to boat trips to major events.

Get inspired by the stories of other people—including Miss New York 2022, Taryn Delanie Smith—who created unforgettable getaways. Practical information—can you bring your dog or your bike on the train? What food is available onboard?— is in here, too.

We outline possible itineraries, highlight the best hiking trails in the state and have an exclusive chat with three New York City hotel concierges who fill us in on the best of the Big Apple. Meet five conductors (including one who sings opera on the train), and learn how to easily get to the state’s best minor-league baseball stadiums.
