Sometimes it's nice to forgo 'modern conveniences' and get back to simpler times. Getting a letter in the mail always trumps an e-mail. Having an in-person conversation feels a lot more personal than texting. And taking a train to your destination might feel like stepping back in time, too. With, you know, free Wi-Fi. Amtrak has been around since the 1970s and is still chugging along today, going to more destinations than ever. And it's added bus service as well. Keep things simple with Amtrak.
