Traveling Tour | SOLD OUT

Salisbury to Raleigh by Rail
December 10, 2022

 Join us Saturday, December 10 as we travel by Amtrak train to North Carolina’s capital for guided tours and an inside look at some of the state’s most treasured structures.

Tour participants will meet at the Salisbury Amtrak Station (215 Depot Street, Salisbury, N.C.) at 6:45 a.m. for check-in.  We will depart aboard Amtrak #80 (Carolinian) at 7:28 a.m., and are scheduled to arrive at Raleigh Union Station at 10:05 a.m.  The first stop on the tour will be the North Carolina State Capitol decorated for the holidays.  Following lunch (on your own), we will tour Historic Oakwood, a community of homes mostly dated from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. There’s a continuing effort to preserve the Victorian, Queen Anne, and Craftsman architectural styles of these homes from a century ago. Enjoy these immaculate homes decorated for the holiday season.

Return is via Amtrak #79 (Carolinian), scheduled to depart Raleigh at 5:30 p.m. and to arrive back in Salisbury at 8:04 p.m.

Tours allow you to stroll through the halls of history, taking in views of Tarheel treasures and some of the best offerings the state’s capital has to offer.
