Amtrak Offers Fun & Responsible Alternative to Driving

With its sleeping, dining, and private bathroom accommodations, the concept is a great one. Once at your destination, you could rent a hybrid car or even take a multi-day bike tour.  I just wish that Amtrak offered more competitive rates to flying. If you’ve got the time, I recommend looking into the following lines.

Great Amtrak Train Rides

  • Silver Service/Palmetto line services many cities along the East Coast
  • California Zephyr route runs between Chicago and San Francisco
  • Empire Builder route runs between Chicago and Seattle
