Here’s a little motivation to book that Labor Day or fall weekend getaway.
For two days, Amtrak is offering 50 percent off tickets purchases nationwide. Starting Friday Aug. 16 through Saturday Aug. 17, you can score tickets for anywhere in the country for travel between Sept. 1 and Sept. 30 with no blackout dates.
The September sale means you can travel one-way from San Francisco to Los Angeles for $33 or San Francisco to Portland for $46. Departing from Los Angeles? Ride one-way to Sacramento for only $33, or to Portland for $61.
Here are the pros: It’s cheaper than a one-way Southwest flight and you have the ability to use your phones and electronic devices at all times, bring your puppy, two personal items and two carry-on bags and stretch out your legs: There’s no middle seat on a train.
The two-day exclusive sale ends Aug. 17. For more information on the September Sale, visit www.amtrak.com/septembersale.
