The best source for everything Deep South USA


Amtrak around the South

On your next adventure to the Deep South, why not take some time out and let someone else worry about the driving. Many parts of our region are served by the USA’s national rail operator – Amtrak.

Amtrak offers a variety of ways to experience their services. Their standard ‘coach’ seat offers a wide, comfortable, reclining seat with great leg room along with a fold down tray, individual reading light and power outlet to charge your electronic devices (Hint, book a window seat as the power outlets are under the windows and you can take in all the wonderful Southern scenery). If you're feeling fancy, then why not upgrade to Business class? It offers an enhanced experience such as extra leg room and complimentary soft drinks.

If you’re on a longer journey, why not book a private cabin, you can choose from the lead in roomette that has 2 seats and bunkbeds, to a family bedroom that will sleep 4, these also include complimentary dining and car attendant.

The Crescent Route starts in New Orleans and includes stops in Hattiesburg (Mississippi), Tuscaloosa and Birmingham (Alabama), before winding its way up to New York via Atlanta and Washington D.C..

The City of New Orleans line serves New Orleans, Jackson (Mississippi), Memphis and Fulton (Kentucky), before making its way up to Chicago.

Amtrak is also hopeful of re-introducing The Gulf Coast Service that links Mobile, Alabama to New Orleans. Read our blog for further details.
