After an early morning departure from Washington Union Station or Alexandria, enjoy breakfast served at your table, as Amtrak’s Regional train #67 takes us southward over the trestles spanning scenic tributaries of the Potomac River and through the historic cities of Fredericksburg and Richmond. Make new friends and relax in comfortable Pullman armchairs while white-jacketed attendants serve you beverages, libations, and snacks.
Shortly before mid-day, Dover Harbor will arrive at Williamsburg. Stroll back in time on the eighteenth century streets in Colonial Williamsburg. Enjoy the beauty of the autumn colors in the restored gardens or tour the historic sites (admission fee) during a five hour visit (the historic district is approximately a six block walk from Amtrak’s Boundary Street Station); or, continue your train ride to the end of the line at Newport News where you can visit attractions such as the world famous Mariner’s Museum, a short taxi ride from the Newport News Amtrak station (admission fee).
Dover Harbor will depart from Newport News in late afternoon with Amtrak’s Regional train #66, stopping at Williamsburg on the way. A delicious supper will be served while en route home to Alexandria and Washington.
