So I planned a few weeks ago to go visit my BFF this weekend who lives about 5 hours away. I don't get off work until 5:30 and have been SO EXHAUSTED by the end of the day/week that I was a little wary about driving 5 hours after that.
While messing around online, I checked out the Amtrak station about an hour away, (closest one.) Check this... $66 ROUND TRIP! You definitely can't drive it for that!
The downfall is that the only trip is from midnight to 4 am. Well that and they charge $15 to hand deliver the tickets.
I'm UBER excited about my first train ride. Must admit I've always wanted to ride one. HOLLA!
