Got a wealthy client looking for a unique, luxurious New Year’s getaway? If so, Pullman Rail Journeys may just have the answer with its second-annual 2016 New Year’s Florida Special.

Travelling in first-class rail style, guests depart from Chicago’s Union Station in meticulously restored Pullman cars the evening of Dec. 27, stopping in Orlando, West Palm Beach and Miami on Dec. 29. The return journey departs for Chicago from South Florida beginning the morning of Jan. 2, 2016. Riding the legendary Capitol Limited to Washington, D.C. and Silver Meteor along the East Coast routes, guests will be treated to historic menus, attentive service and onboard entertainment.
