    Amtrak travel

    Trains rock. There are plenty of windows, but things can go by quickly. My husband and I traveled 12 hours (several stops and layovers) on Amtrak a number of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The train going had an observation car that was very room with big window that wrapped up the sides and over the roof, but the seats were sideways facing the windows. On the way back it was quite crowded and a couple of the cars had seats in not very good condition, so our trip wasn't as enjoyable, but overall it was a good experience.

    Last summer my principal and several of the teachers took a trip for enjoyment/education on Amtrak--about the same length of time as my trip. They didn't enjoy it very much. I think in part to the length. They were also traveling at night, and weren't very comfortable.

    If you are prone to motion sickness, you will probably not enjoy Amtrak, but other than that, a 3 hour trip would probably be fun unless it was really crowded--harder to get up and move around.
