When was the last time you rode a train? Have you ever even been on a train? Here are just a few reasons why you should consider taking the train instead of driving or flying.
A Fun Way To Really See The Country
Long distance and cross-country trains navigate their way through regions that you can’t access by car, or that would be tricky to get to on foot. This provides you with a fun way to really see the country—even regions you are somewhat familiar with.
A Relaxing Way To Travel
Taking a train allows you to kick back, relax, and enjoy the scenery. It also gives you time to read, chat, or unplug for a bit. Head to the onboard restaurant and chat with your fellow travelers. If you will be staying the night on the train, it’s worth upgrading to a private cabin.
Don’t Forget Your Local Trains Too
If you live in a large metropolis with city or suburb trams and trains, identify more ways to work them into your monthly schedule. Trains are often faster than driving in rush hour traffic, eliminate the need to park, and they are an easy way to minimize your carbon footprint.
Also, consider a trip planned entirely around a train vacation!
