I love when businesses do this: Celebrate their anniversaries and birthdays with cheap pricing that gives you and me a chance to experience something we may not normally do.
In this case, the Amtrak Downeaster is selling roundtrip tickets for 20 bucks. That's so inexpensive and worth the price to do a bit of car-free traveling along the route.
What fun day trips or weekend getaways we can start planning.
Honestly, check out what fun it is while you're heading to your destination. I mean seriously you may not want to get off and just enjoy the ride. Just the views while dining on snacks for delectable meals while reading, playing cards, or listening to music may be the perfect destresser.
"Onboard the Amtrak Downeaster enjoy comfortable reclining seats with lots of legroom, oversized windows to enjoy the scenic views, free wi-fi, and personal outlets at every seat. The Downeaster Cafe is open on all trains where you can purchase snacks and beverages to consume at a cafe table or at your seat."
If you're not familiar, the Amtrak Downeaster's website explains that its goal is connecting Northern New Englanders with passenger rail service between Brunswick, Maine and Boston.
It has 11 stations total in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. The website says that tickets usually range from $3-$30 one way depending on where you're heading, so this $20 celebratory roundtrip price is most definitely worth a gander.
Planning a last minute getaway sans your car just got interesting.
All of the info you need for this fun, winter ride is right here. You'll find the code you need to use to buy your passenger tickets and enjoy a February getaway to shake off the winter cobwebs casually.
