Now that the kids are out of school for the summer, North Carolina’s Amtrak is offering an opportunity for low-cost weekday family getaways. Now through August, children ages 2-12 can ride the train for just $5 each way in North Carolina.

With six trains daily to Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte and nine other North Carolina cities on the Piedmont and Carolinian, there’s no shortage of fun destinations along the rail corridor. Take a day trip to have lunch and meander around a nearby historic downtown, or make it an overnight adventure with a hotel stay. 

Promotional details: Up to two kids can ride for $5 with a regular full fare adult on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays within North Carolina. Offer is valid for travel June 3-August 28. Use fare code V812 when buying your ticket. Seating is limited. Advance reservations required. Not valid with other offers. Other restrictions may apply.
