The train journey north to New York from Miami is a long-distance, cross-country route of 1,389 miles. It’s an overnight sleeper train that takes over 24 hours to arrive. The Amtrak Silver Service is the most direct route with no layovers. This is then split into two different trains, which operate on separate timetables and dates. The Silver Meteor heads directly to New York; the Silver Star detours via Tampa.

The Silver Service to New York has many exclusive onboard amenities. You can book a sleeper carriage in several different sizes for a comfortable trip. This gives you access to complimentary dining. There are also standard café services and free Wi-Fi onboard too. The train itself departs from Miami Station, which exclusively covers Amtrak’s Silver Service. The station is located 9 miles northwest of Downtown Miami, with connections by metro and bus. It’s important to arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled departure. Upon departing by the more direct Silver Meteor, you’ll stop at the following major stations:

  • Orlando Health Station
  • Savannah Station
  • Charleston Station
  • Washington Union Station
  • New York Penn Station

North along the Atlantic Coast

Departing from Miami Station, your train skirts the suburbs before heading parallel to the coast. Following the Atlantic Coast north, you’ll stop through Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach, and West Palm Beach before veering northwest. Taking in Florida's inner heartlands, your train passes Lake Okeechobee en route for Orlando. You’ll then head north for Jacksonville, following the winding St Johns River.

Crossing into Georgia via Folkston, you'll pass through the stunning Okefenokee Wilderness en route to Savannah. The Silver Meteor arrives in Savannah’s dreamy city center by evening, offering pretty sunsets as you head north in summer. After spotting Savannah’s elegant mansions, leafy boulevards, and cute townhouses, you cross into South Carolina.

Into the North East

The journey through South and North Caroline is leafy and hilly but likely taken at night. You’ll pass through Charleston, Fayetteville, and Rocky Mount before reaching Virginia by early morning. The journey across Virginia takes several hours, cutting through Richmond via the famed James River. Look out for pretty scenes as you follow the Potomac River north into Washington via the old Long Bridge. The views here are fantastic, with open scenes of the US capital and its prized monuments.

Your train now joins the busy North East Corridor, a section of railway connecting Washington with New York and Boston. You’ll pass through Baltimore, Wilmington, and Philadelphia before reaching New Jersey. It’s a fairly quick journey across these four North-East states before passing under the Hudson River via Newark. You disembark at Penn Station, the country’s busiest train station located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.

Welcome to New York, NY – the Big Apple and buzzing metropolis

New York is a giant of a city, boasting delightful neighborhoods to explore and the world's top museums. At the cutting-edge of art, performance, dining, and fashion trends, it's among the top city breaks. While Manhattan beckons with its glitzy lights and dense cultural attractions, be sure to explore the other four boroughs.

Get lost in its neighborhoods

While New York may appear sprawling and daunting, it's actually fairly compact. Sticking to neighborhoods is a great way to experience New York up-close and sample the city's fine culinary traditions. As such, this is a city made for wandering. Visit the Lower East Side for a taste of old New York, or head to the East Village to soak up the art. Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is a hipster-lover's paradise, and the Upper West Side boasts the city’s oldest Jewish delis. Enjoy the vibe, explore an old café, and indulge in neighborhood quirks, like the fine Indian food of Jackson Heights.

Then there’s Central Park in Manhattan. The scale of the park and its many features remain extraordinary. Enjoy 843-acres of soft meadows, rocky outcrops, and well-manicured gardens. A central lake, zoo and outdoor performances mean you could spend a whole day here. It's the perfect wandering respite when the city's hustle and bustle get too much. There are plenty of other fine parks throughout the city too, from Prospect Park to Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Monumental museums and attractions

New York boasts three of the world's most prestigious art galleries. The Met, Guggenheim, and MoMA are all clustered around Manhattan, offering countless days of exploring. There are smaller, more contemporary galleries, too, especially in Chelsea, Brooklyn, and the Lower East Side. Sticking to Central Manhattan, there's the impressive American Museum of Natural History, famed for its appearance in Night at the Museum. You'll find many of these big-hitters on Museum Mile, a stretch of Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 110th Street. Other highlights include the Museum of the City of New York and Smithsonian Design Museum.

Escaping Manhattan, one of the top sites in the city is Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. The historical gateway into the US, the island now boasts several museums which pay tribute to the city's history of immigration. Several highlights need to be booked in advance. Statue cruises can book up fast and are prone to long queues - so book early. If you want to climb to the top of the Statue of Liberty’s crown, pre-booking is also necessary. Across from Ellis Island, you'll find the poignant September 11 Memorial Museum, immortalizing a darker moment in the city’s history.
