(NAPSI)-Looking for a vacation idea that will allow you more quality time with your grandchildren? How about one that combines quality time with good value? Then you should consider taking a vacation by train. Train travel can fulfill some of a traveling family's most important needs for an exciting, yet relaxing vacation. These advantages of train vacationing were recently reported by the U.S. Travel Data Center:

Without the pressure of driving, grandparents can start their vacation right away, explains family travel authority Candyce Stapen, author of family travel guides. On a train, even before you arrive at your destination, she says, you can enjoy quality time. You don't have to worry about traffic or getting lost, so you have more energy to be with the kids, she explains, adding, "Children can move around on a train, visit the lounge car, even find other children to play with, so they're happy."

To encourage more grandparents and their grandchildren to take advantage of train travel, Amtrak offers discount senior and child fares year-round, air/rail packages and special vacation bargains.
