I wouldn’t normally give a train ride its own post, but seriously, this is such a beautiful journey from Boston to New York City. In fact in 2012, Amtrak carried more riders between New York and Boston than all of the airlines combined.
The train was packed with people being Columbus (or as some people referred to it, invasion) day – its the second busiest travel day of the American calendar, Thanksgiving being the other.
I got on at Back Bay station in Boston, and off at the only stop in NYC, Penn Station. The rest of the time was spent staring out the window at the amazing fall foliage and New England scenery.
