- Wedding: September 2008
This may sound weird…I need advice from those who have Amtrak experience (was it pleasant?) and those from the Northeast/New England.
Fiance and I live in Hawaii and get gorgeous tropical weather all the time, therefore we want to do something different from the typical tropical honeymoon and we aren’t afraid of going somewhere cold! That plus the fact that we have a tight budget made us think of sticking close to home for the honeymoon. We will be married in September in Tennessee and will be taking our honeymoon in early October…what are your thoughts on an Amtrak honeymoon through New England and down the east coast? I have never ridden on Amtrak, but can picture a romantic train journey with incredible scenery. Is this delusional? Is it like this at all? Has anyone in the hive ever ridden this route? Also, will the fall colors be in-season in early October?
My initial idea is to fly in to Montreal, and somehow end up in Washington DC (have to be there for a friend’s wedding 2 weeks later.) Since we have 2 weeks to play with, where should we go? If you know the area, I would be ever appreciative if you would take a quick look at this map and let me know if you recommend any quaint little places along the way.
And if you have negative Amtrak experience and think this would be a terrible idea for a honeymoon…please let me know too! 🙂
Thanks so much!
