Atlanta to New Orleans on Amtrak

Such a Great Trip at Such a Low Price

by William Hill

Atlanta, Georgia

My daughter Victoria just finished her first college tour at Tulane University. She said one big reason she likes Tulane is the Amtrak train makes it really cool to come back and forth to Atlanta. Plus, its cheap and green.

We had our first Amtrak trip last December to New Orleans just for fun and Victoria is now a Train Person. The view from the Cresent is at its best when you go over Lake Ponchitrain — so pretty.

You also get to see some unusual stuff like Army tanks being transported. All in all it was a great trip with a great daughter.
