We love trains and train travel and want you to have the best rail experience possible. This includes providing tips and information on fascinating places to visit and where you can rent a car or book a hotel near a station. In addition to Amtrak, we have guides on local transit in Atlanta and Chicago.

As an independent business with friendly writers and researchers, we will also tell it like it is when it comes to what you need to know about routes and schedules, including best options if you are trying to get to a national park (we’re sorry to say that most require hours of driving from the closest Amtrak station). We know that it can be hard to get clear information online, so we’re happy to do the legwork for you, present some great trip ideas and help you know what to expect in your journey.
