I took the Acela from New York to Washington for the first time last night. This is the way to travel! Comfortable seats, leg room, tables, power, and no TSA. It's totally hassle free travel. You can even get bottled beer in the Cafe Car to enjoy while watching the world go by at 150mph.
It's a little pricey, but the value is there. If only it went down to Atlanta...
Hmmm... plus I believe you can get United miles on Amtrak.
