On an Amtrak Train to Boston
AhHA: Traveling by train! Why didn't someone think of this sooner? Big seats, a separate eating car with tables, huge windows, and even a Quiet Car. Of course we didn't get on the quiet car, but I love that it was an option for the other passengers. It took most of the traveling-with-kids guilt away. I wish airlines would have something like this. Also: kids rides are 50% off!
I'd also like to say thanks to the Amtrak employee who spotted us out in the crowd and let us board first. He even reversed an escalator direction so we could get down faster and avoid the crowds. Since seats are first come first serve, we were able to sit together and comfortably.
I wish this was a sponsored post. Amtrak? You listening? I'll take more trips with you anytime!
Have you traveled by train? With kids? Did you like it? Where are some cool places out of NYC?
