  • Going from Bos to MD Should I take Acela?

    I've got a business trip coming up in early September. I'm torn between flying and taking the Acela. I can do a small bag as its an overnight and actually take a train from Lowell into Boston, hop on the T (subway) and hit South Station for the Acella and make it a rail odessy.

    Anyone able to offer up pros and cons for taking this trip? Planes are actually seeming a safer bet with all the derailments as of late...

    Absolutely take Acela! It is a comfotable and smooth ride. It may take a bit longer than a plane but it is less of a hassle and a more relaxed atmosphere!

    Just my 2 cents
