Ride The Amtrak Through Kentucky’s Appalachian Mountains For Just $28

It doesn’t get much more beautiful than Kentucky’s Appalachian Mountains. Covered with a seemingly endless expanse of lush, dense forests, the Appalachians of Kentucky will show you why we’re called the Bluegrass State. During the spring and summer, this mountainous region is a beautiful shade of deep green-blue; in the fall, the rolling blue hills are painted in the red, orange, and golden colors of autumn. If you’re looking for a scenic tour of Appalachia, climb aboard the Amtrak Cardinal. You can ride the Amtrak Cardinal Train through the Kentucky Appalachians for just $28, and it’s a scenic trip you won’t ever forget.

**Editor’s note: Amtrak ticket prices vary by day, depending on a number of factors, including departure/arrival times. At the time of writing, $28 tickets for the Cardinal Train were available, with morning departure/evening arrival times. 

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
