Amtrak’s Silver Meteor

Phase 3 of our summer vacation is taking the train from New York City down to Miami. We boarded the Amtrak silver meteor on Friday afternoon, schedule departure at 3 p.m. that right away it was delayed by one hour so we left at 4 pm. For the next 27 hours we traversed South through Philadelphia, Washington DC, Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, and Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. This trip normally costs about $600 for the sleeper car but we were able to use Amtrak points and basically take this trip for free. The really great thing about this is that we get free meals on board and a private room with bunk beds.  Plus just lots of free time to just watch the scenery and landscapes go by out our big windows…
