We just returned from our third overnight trip on Amtrak, and we have enjoyed every minute of each trip.
It is so relaxing to travel from city center to city center without long taxi rides, security lines, uncertain waits, weather worries, sardine seats, and no food.
On Amtrak the people are friendly, the food is excellent, the accommodations are sized for real people, and the scenery is interesting.
When you fly somewhere on vacation, the enjoyment doesn’t begin until you’ve surmounted the challenges of getting there. When you take the train, the enjoyment begins as soon as you step onboard.
