Tidewater Traveler - Garden Sense Trip

The National Railway Historical Society,
Washington DC Chapter, Incorporated (DCNRHS)
presents the
 
Tidewater Traveler
 
Sunday, April 3, 2011 - Sold Out!
 
 
  This is a special trip with the hosts of 630 WMAL's Garden Sense.
  
Experience luxurious rail travel aboard the classic 1930’s Pullman lounge/sleeper Dover Harbor-- travel to the Tidewater region of Virginia to Williamsburg, the Colonial Capital, or to the maritime city of Newport News.  On this trip you will be traveling with the hosts of WMAL Radio’s Garden Sense Program.
 
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 spring flowers 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.
