All aboard! Amtrak will celebrate its 8th National Train Day on May 9th, 2015. Amtrak will kick off a summer of train inspired travel starting in Chicago but they won't stop there. Train Days will hit the rails, traveling across the country and stopping in several communities from May until November to celebrate train travel. Select locations will feature the exhibit train during the tour. See if Train Days is coming to a station near you by visiting their events page.
After living in Europe for several years, I've done my fair share of traveling by train. Europe has a great train system with my favorite being the super fast train from Kaiserslautern, Germany to Paris, France. Train travel was never something I had experienced until moving to Europe, but once you get a taste of how easy and fun it is to travel by train you are hooked. I can't wait for my husband's schedule to settle down so that we can plan our Amtrak train vacation around the US.
National Train Day officially starts in Chicago Union Station from 10am -3pm. Experience free family friendly events like "Why Trains Matter" and Chuggington's Kid Depot for toy train tables and coloring. Join Amtrak as they celebrate connecting over 550 communities in 46 states!
My little guy is really starting to get into trains now and is already getting a little collection of train toys.
