Topic #192: Planes, trains or automobiles? What is your favorite way to travel 500 miles?
My favorite way to travel 500 miles is definitely by car. I travel between New York City and Virginia Beach, Va regularly and always use a car as the chosen mode of transport.
Traveling less than 1000 miles by plane seems like a waste to me. I use all modes of transport yearly and the biggest decision in which method I chose is distance. If I am going only about 600 miles then I am definitely going by car. Driving along the highway relaxes me and gives me peace. I can clear my thoughts, relax and focus on issues I might be having at that particular moment.
The exception to the rule is if I am visiting Washington, D.C. that trip requires Amtrak. There is nothing like riding the Excela Express between NYC and DC.
