Fun Train Vacations

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

If you are looking for a great way to travel during your vacation, but you do not want to fly, then you might want to consider train travel. Trains are a great way to get from place to place while taking in the scenery, and there are many scenic train routes which will have you in awe as you enjoy the sights and sounds on your way to your vacation destination.

One of the must popular fun train vacations is the train that runs from Florida all the way to Virginia. This trip also allows you to bring your car, which is loaded onto the train with you. No matter which direction you are going, you will enjoy the sights and sounds. However, if you do opt for this trip, you should definitely consider getting a room on the train. While there are coach seats available, in general they are not very comfortable, and for just a few dollars more, you can get a room which will allow you to have your own private bath and bunks which bed four people.

In addition to your private quarters, which are available on this train, there are also dining cars, which will let you eat dinner and socialize with the other people on the train. These dining cars offer great dinners, from simple things like ice cream and tacos, to steak dinners and wine. Of course, the price of your meal is included in your ticket cost, so there is no need to worry about buying yourself food while you are on the train.

However, if you would rather not eat dinner in the car, you can ring your attendant who will take your dinner order and have it brought to you. In addition, if you have ordered wine with your meal, you will receive the entire bottle at no extra cost, which makes it a great way to relax while you are on your way to your vacation destination.

Of course, with any train ride, there are a few downsides to consider. The train tends to be a bit bumpy, so some people can have trouble getting to sleep at night. However, after a few hours on the train, you should hardly notice these bumps. You should also know that you'll have to wait to be seated in the dining car, just like in a restaurant, so depending on how the cars are arranged, you could have an early or late dinner.

These are only a few minor problems, which shouldn't stop you from booking a fun train vacation for you and your family today, as they are a once in a lifetime experience which will stick with you for many years to come.
