      Thanks CA! I will definitely give ‘Buka’ in Brooklyn a try. If it’s close to your Mom’s cooking, I am there! 🙂

10 Reasons to Travel By Train to the Next Family Vacation!

Are you tossing around ideas for the next family vacation? Are you tired of long lines at TSA checkpoints and having to pay for checked bags for every member of the family? If you answered yes to both questions, consider arriving at your next family vacation by train.

Most people overlook the train as a travel option thinking its not safe, often late or just as expensive as flying or driving. Well I just watched ‘Flight’ with Denzel Washington, we are not going to talk air travel safety here, LOL.  The statistics of how often planes are late is another article in itself.

With that being said, here are 10 reasons to consider travelling by train to your next family vacation:

1.  Traveling by train offers passengers much more room to relax,

2. There’s a cafe car filled with sandwiches, snacks and more.

3. You can also pack your own snacks and sandwiches and avoid the cafe car.

4. Most trains are now equipped with (free) wi-fi

5.  Free wi-fi allows you and the family to watch movies and play your favorite games on an iPad/laptop.

6. For longer trips a full service dining car and sleep car accommodations are also available options.

7. Our favorite reason to travel by train…free checked bags (the first two anyway) and each passenger can also take two carry-on bags.

8. And, the best reason to travel by train (with kids and if time allows) is the mere fact that kids ages 2-15 ride for half off.

9. And,  infants ride for free! That can add up to a considerable amount of vacation spending money.

10. Along with all of these great reasons, traveling by train also gives passengers beautiful unparalleled views of the country that you can not get from an airplane seat.

Seriously consider traveling by train on your next family vacation or business trip. Join Amtrak rewards program (it’s totally free), with each trip you take you’ll earn points towards a free trip. Visit www.Amtrak.com today to join!
