Amtrak!!!

So in just couple days we all get to board the train and head for California!!! I'm so excited!! Traveling by train is the BEST! For those of you who take planes and cars i'm happy it works for you, but for me and my small family we have fallen in love with the train. We get a little roommette which has two chairs that face each other and at night fold into a bed. There is also a bed that swings down from the top to making enough room for two to sleep just fine. We eat on the train and our meals are included in fare. What could be better. No seat belts! There are showers to use, beds to sleep in, free juice and you can roam the train. I LOVE IT! I would recommend that all people try the train at least once!

That sounds fun. How long does it take to get to CA? How much per person?

My mom could recount a nightmarish anecdote about traveling with 2 toddlers, by train, to las vegas.

It involves kids diving through closing train compartment doors and conductors announcing over the loud speaker to keep you kids seated.

How much does it cost to take the train? That would be fun to try. Also, does it take a longer amount of time to get from one place to another?
