Greetings Family and Friends! 😊
How are you? I trust that you are having a great day! As many of you know, I am a global travel journalist and I love traveling the world! But did you know that I have never been on Amtrak? My hubby Tony and I have always said that we wanted to take a train ride! Well… we will do so quite soon!
Amtrak has just offered a limited-time summer sale! If you buy one sleeping accommodation such as a roomette or bedroom, your companion rides with you for FREE! How cool is that? Well… my hubby and I took advantage of this offer! He bought the ticket and I’m his plus one! This just keeps getting better! Meals are included in the price of the ticket!
In your private room, you’ll relax in your seats by day as you behold the beautiful landscapes of America. Late into the evening, your chairs convert into beds for a night of calming rest. You can purchase your tickets between June 4 – 10, 2019 on Amtrak.com . It is valid for travel from August 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020.
“We believe that the journey is part of the adventure. Recognizing the need to get more out of every moment, we wanted to offer our customers a truly unique way to experience the country this summer,” said Amtrak President and CEO Richard Anderson. “With our sleeper sale, customers can share the experience while taking in some of the best views and sightseeing opportunities the United States has to offer.”
