Travel Across America By Train With This 2-For-1 Amtrak Flash Sale

Feel like traveling the country but don’t have a wad of cash to spend on plane tickets? This Amtrak flash sale could help.

From now until February 18, 2019, Amtrak is giving customers the chance to get a second ticket for free on nationwide travel when they book one ticket. That’s effectively half-price travel for two – and a really stellar belated Valentine’s Day gift.

Travelers can book tickets on any reserved service, and some of the deals are hard to believe. For example, two people can travel one way from Portland, Maine to Boston, Massachusetts for just $29 total. You can also grab tickets for two from New York City to Washington, D.C. for just $96 total. Affordable West Coast options include tickets on a one-way ride from Portland, Oregon to Seattle, Washington ride for $35 total and a pair of one-way tickets from San Francisco, California to Portland, Oregon cost just $96 total.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

There are a few restrictions. The travel dates must be between March 25 and July 29, 2019, and tickets on unreserved services like the Pennsylvanian, Keystone Service, Capitol Corridor, or the Hiawatha Service aren’t eligible.
