When you travel by long-distance train, it is about much more than just getting there. Getting away is always a good idea and bringing a companion can make the experience even better. For a limited time, Amtrak is offering customers the opportunity to bring a friend or loved one on the journey for free.
Across the United States, there are sights that can only be seen from the train. Traveling through the middle of a lake while heading to New Orleans. Passing through the Cascade Mountains and the nearly 8-mile long Cascade Tunnel. Skirting the Pacific Ocean for hundreds of miles. These are just a few of the sights you can see.
