New Travel Option

I was looking at the Pennsylvania Convention Center's site today and decided to look at their page dedicated to travel. Among the options listed was the Amtrak train station, a well-known cross country rail line. I decided to do a quote on the site and this is what I got:
$246 for 16 hours. 

Compared to:
Over $340 for an approximately 2 hour flight.

Although the idea of sitting on a train for 16 hours sounds a tad excruciating, I think Amtrak might be the better deal. It'd be a bit more friendly for my pockets. 

What do you think? NABJ-ers, how are you getting to Philly? Leave a comment.
