Recently I took a trip from Orlando, Florida to Washington DC via Amtrak. It was my first long distance trip on a train and I loved it! My only regret is not getting a sleeper car. If you are going on a trip and are not in a hurry, Amtrak is a great way to go. I'm hooked on travelling by rail now. Just make sure you get a sleeper car if your trip is more than a couple hours long. If you plan your trip far enough in advance I think you will be plesantley surprised with the price.
