Forget the chocolates, the roses, and even the accessories meant to spice up your love life. The most romantic gesture you can make this Valentine’s Day is to organize a surprise trip for you and your beloved. And if that trip includes a charming train journey, you’re sure to score a few extra smooches. With Amtrak’s Valentine’s Day sale, not only will you secure your status as a thoughtful partner, you’ll also save some of your hard-earned dollars — maybe even enough to book a fancy adult-only hotel.

From February 9 to February 16, 2022, Amtrak’s Valentine’s Day is a heck of a deal: book a trip for two for the price of one. It’s valid for trips from March 1 to August 31, 2022 (not during Valentine’s weekend), which means you can plan a surprise trip for later in the year.

Amtrak’s Valentine’s Day sale includes the following super cheap trips:

  • New York, NY, to Providence, RI, for just $25 in coach or $66 in business class
  • Los Angeles, CA, to Seattle, WA, for just $101 in coach
  • New York, NY, to Chicago, IL, for just $10 in coach
  • Boston, MA, to New York, NY, for $69 in business class
  • Philadelphia, PA, to Savannah, GA, for $112 in coach
  • Charlotte, NC, to New York, NY, for $101 in coach

Amtrak’s Valentine’s Day sale is valid for travel in coach on most routes in the US, as well as on Acela Business Class in the Northeast. So don’t limit yourself and look into some of the most scenic train rides on offer — perhaps even those that go through US national parks. The Empire Builder Amtrak route, for example, runs between Chicago and Seattle via Glacier National Park. It even stops at East Glacier Park train station inside the park and just a few steps away from the grand Glacier Park Lodge.
