Promoting travel within states... Ever considered traveling by train?
This year because of the economy, I am seeing more people travel within the states. Well here are some steals if you don't have a lot of money to travel abroad for the holiday season. Here are some advantages compared to flight (e.g. you don't get pinged if you want to bring another bag, you don't have to go through all the security hassles, they are pretty lenient in canceling or rebooking rides, there are outlets so if you wanted to work you could, you can bring your own wireless card and use it on the train).
Amtrak offers these deals:
15-day pass (8-legs) for $389
They also offer 30-day and 45-day passes, perfect for students to travel together in the summer.
