I just boarded Amtrak’s City of New Orleans in Hammond, Louisiana for a media tour with http://www.selagumbo.com, an organization of Louisiana parishes in the Southeast region of the state. We’re sharing a bit of Louisiana cuisine along the way with stops in Jackson, MS and Memphis, TN. I haven’t been on an Amtrak train since I was a kid. The coach seats are much more spacious than an airline seat, plus pillows are available at no extra charge. Plus, I’m able to write this post, from my phone, while on the way.
Kids ages 15 and under ride at 1/2 price. To book your seat, check out http://amtrak.com.
See how much room there is?
