Amtrak’s Silver Star route travels daily between New York City and Miami. The Silver Star shares many stations with the Silver Meteor, but the Silver Star makes additional stops in North Carolina and travels to Tampa, plus tickets are less expensive because the train only has a cafe and not a dining car. Note that this is an overnight train, and sleeping accommodations are available at an extra cost.
