Amtrak Autumn Color Express
(New Tour!)

Day 1

TRAVEL TO HINTON WV • RAILROAD DAYS FESTIVAL • AUTUMN COLORS EXPRESS TRAIN • HUNTINGTON WV • DINNER:

This morning we travel north to Hinton WV to join in the excitement at the Railroad Days Festival. Located right in the center of Hinton, this annual event displays one-of-a-kind handmade goods – purses, jewelry, household items, décor, leather goods, and stained glass - along with restored vintage items, birdhouses, and canned jellies and jams. Local stores offer an assortment of items to browse through, from clothes and shoes to souvenirs and sundries. Then we climb aboard the Autumn Colors Express, a vintage passenger train that takes us through the heart of the scenic and historic New River Gorge National Park for iconic views of West Virginia. We arrive in Huntington and enjoy an included dinner before checking into our hotel for a two night stay. (D)
Day 2

MUSEUM OF RADIO & TECHNOLOGY • HERITAGE FARM • CENTRAL CITY ANTIQUES SHOPPING • WE ARE MARSHALL TOUR • PULLMAN SQUARE:

Our first stop this morning is at the Museum of Radio & Technology, one of the largest antique radio museums in the United States. See vintage radios, computers like they used to be, hi-fi, and more! We have lunch during our visit to Heritage Farm, a recreated 19th century Appalachian village that includes museum, animal exhibits, artisans, and an adventure park. Experience what life might have been for the region’s settlers from the 1850s onward. Interact with animals in the petting zoo and nature center. Next we have time for shopping at Central City Antiques District. Explore the art gallery, farmers market, café, coffee shop, and multiple antiques shops. Each shop has a specialty, from vintage garden to glassware, furniture, toys, memorabilia, book, and more! A stepon guide leads our “We Are Marshall” tour. If you remember, in 1970, the entire Marshall University football team along with coaches and supporters, lost their lives in a tragic plane crash on a return flight home from East Carolina. The story of how the school and community rebuilt themselves was told in the movie “We Are Marshall.” Now we see where the movie was filmed, visit pertinent locations, and honor those lost at the Memorial Fountain. We take a short break at our hotel before heading over to Pullman Square for dinner on our own and shopping. Located in downtown Huntington, the Square combines a state-of-the-art multiplex movie theater with shops, restaurants, cafes, and unique entertainment venues, all in a park-like setting. Take a stroll, relax, shop, and grab some dinner. (L)
Day 3

BLENKO GLASS • CHARLESTON WV • CAPITOL MARKET • HOME:

It would be impossible to come to this region without a visit to Blenko Glass, visiting the museum and gift shop. A family owned and operated business since 1893, Blenko is known for their exquisite color, and imaginative designs that have made them famous in the time-honored craft of hand-blown glass. We travel on to Charleston WV as we head south, stopping at Capitol Market, a vibrant part of West Virginia’s capital city. Tucked in a turn-of-the-century train station, the indoor-outdoor market offers an exciting mix of farm goodness and specialty shops. Pick up seasonal goods and WV-made gifts to take home. Order soup, salad or a sandwich from one of the many lunch hot spots, or pop into a lively Italian restaurant for a sit-down meal. Grab some artisan chocolates and cheeses to enjoy on the ride home.
