In 1971, you were probably dancing to disco on Soul Train, wearing a dashiki while sporting the biggest afro, and for some of us, stepping aboard Amtrak for the first time. Now 40 years later, you still dance to disco…privately, the dashiki is now a fashion accessory to your granddaughter, but a ride aboard Amtrak will never go out of style. And now, as Amtrak celebrates 40 years of great service, take your kids or grandkids ages 2-15 for a ride for FREE* for 40 days between May 1, 2011 and June 9, 2011. See, turning 40 is not so bad after all. Find out more information here.
Take them to see the new MLK Monument in Washington, D.C. aboard the Capitol Limited, see the Grand Canyon aboard the Southwest Chief or experience the California coastline aboard the Coast Starlight, all for FREE for 40 days. Amtrak wants to give the next generation an opportunity to enjoy the journey to more than 500 destinations across the country. Who knows, in the next 40 years they could tell the story of their dream trip aboard Amtrak to their children.
