Amtrak Train Travel: Should You Really Do It? My Honest Pros And Cons

I took the Amtrak train recently. Here are my pros and cons: Pros: 1. I checked 2 bags completely FREE (maximum 50 pounds each) 2. Cheap tickets, especially if you get deals 3. Very slow paced, very relaxing 4. Really roomy and spacious 5. Café car at the back of the train (they take cash or credit) 6. Free Wi-Fi! Cons: 1. One hour late! My trip was on a weekday, off peak, not cross country 2. No ticket agent at the stations, so you have to call their toll-free number for customer service 3. Must pay for seat assignments or sit next to strangers 4. Four+ hours late for the return trip, so I called to cancel it for a full refund **** SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel: The Nomadic Foodie **** INSTAGRAM: @thenomadicfoodie **** CONTACT INFO + TRAVEL GIFT SHOP **** Music from Motion Productions - Travel (Copyright Free Music) Download free:
