Sure, planes are great, but they lack both romance and a dining car. Trains, on the other hand, have both. And you can call them choo-choos. With this in mind, why not to take a trip back in time and across the country with a good old-fashioned ride on the rails? You just remembered you love trains, and Amtrak is throwing a three-day winter sale.
From January 30 to February 1, Amtrak is knocking 25% off winter travel. This includes trips from February 13 through March 22, 2018. You'll be taking rides like New York to Chicago for $82, Chicago to New Orleans for $101, and New York to Miami for $116, among others.
Here's the full list of routes:
- Auto Train
- Capitol Limited
- City of New Orleans
- Lake Shore Limited
- Silver Meteor
- Silver Star
- Southwest Chief
- Sunset Limited
Unlike a plane, you'll get to bring two personal items, two bags, and get plenty of legroom without paying extra. There are also no middle seats, Wi-Fi on most trains, and the cafe and dining cars. Head to Amtrak's website and book by Thursday.
