Your ticket to escape cabin fever is to buy a train ticket where you can relax, read, and roam.

Train travel lets you relax because it’s hassle-free, efficient, and, carefree. Once you’re on board all you need to do is enjoy the ride.

Trains offer long strolling places to walk with at least 23 cars to traverse.
