Thinking of Driving to Florida?
I used to drive from Virginia to Florida every two months, if you have driven it; you know what a hassle the traffic and construction on I-95 can be like. I took Amtrak’s Auto Train in 2009 and have not made the 18 hour drive since!
It’s super easy. The train leaves in the afternoon from Lorton, Virginia – right outside Washington D.C. it travels non-stop all the way to Sanford, Florida, just north of Orlando, Florida and all their local attractions – including Disney and Universal Studios. If you want to bring your car with you no, no problem! Just arrive a little easier so they can load your car onto the train!
You’ll leave in the afternoon where you can enjoy the view as you watch the East Coast pass you by. Then enjoy a beautiful sunset while eating a freshly prepared, cooked to order dinner! All of the train cars are Superliner double-decker cars, offering fantastic panoramic views. If you don’t want to disconnect, you’ll be happy to know that Amtrak offers FREE WiFi! You’ll awake with time to have breakfast as you make your way through the lush vegetation of the tropical south. After disembarking, pick up your car and be on your way! It’s that simple!
Feeling like pampering yourself?
