There's a trek from Miami to NYC that takes you on a picturesque journey up the East Coast. You can take a train from Florida this fall with Amtrak and get magical views of the color-changing leaves. This autumn adventure that winds up the coast will make you feel like you're heading to Hogwarts.
For the full magical experience, you can book your ticket at the start of September, the day wizards head back to school in the beloved book series. You can currently score a spot for $130 on a train from SoFlo to the Big Apple on September 1.
Train tickets up the East Coast are more affordable than you think. Prices range from $120 to $170. You'll be taking the Amtrak Silver Service/Palmetto Train. The journey will treat you to scenic coastlines and bustling cities painted with fall colors.
Step aboard this charming locomotive and see what you discover on this spellbinding excursion. You'll zoom past vibrant hues of red, orange, and green as you climb up the country's landscape. It's easy to pretend you're heading to Hogwarts while you daydream by the window.
The vivid scenery is just as bewitching as the ones seen from the Hogwarts Express in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Bring a copy of your favorite novel from the series and immerse yourself in the wizarding world while you chug along.
You can be like Harry and "take the lot" when it comes to tasty eats on your travels. Order one of each of the delicious snacks and treats on the Amtrak onboard cafe menu. Indulge in chewy marshmallow treats, Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream, candy, and cookies while you soak up the view.
You won't believe how enchanting this journey is until you take it. Get cozy in your seat, and you'll soon feel like you've fallen under a spell as you make your way up to the City That Never Sleeps.
