While we certainly skew towards air travel here at Points With a Crew, I’m a huge fan of train travel. If for no other reason than to try something different, we’ve taken the train a few times from Boston. If I’m being honest, it’s probably easier to take the train to New York, rather than flying. This promotion applies primarily to east coast routes within the Amtrak network, so I may just find myself on a train soon.
