Summer is here and it's the perfect opportunity to get out and do some exploring with your kids! Amtrak offers some great programs to encourage kids and families to explore California through travel! Check out some of the great discounts offered by Amtrak.
A program geared for specific groups (church groups, boy scouts, girl scouts and schools), Kids 'n' Trains is designed to allow kids the opportunity to explore travel at a discounted price. Applications should be submitted at least 30 days in advance of travel date and applications are reviewed individually.
Kids 'n' Trains is available on two different routes - the San Joaquin®, which travels through California's agriculturally diverse Central Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Pacific Surfliner®, which serves the Central Coast to Southern California's winding, picturesque coastline.
Kids 'n' Trains is designed to support classroom curriculum, special projects or fields of study, or to just simply have fun! The Kids 'n Trains Destination Guide includes information about destinations along each corridor that relate to agriculture, art, cultural studies, entertainment, government, history, science and technology.
Amtrak also offers "kids ride half price" when traveling with an adult
