Train-able February Events in NYC


Snowy months don’t have to mean hibernation. In fact, the best way to beat the winter blues is to plan some weekend adventures with your besties or S.O.

Since the Big Apple is filled with a cornucopia of all things cultural, we thought we’d recommend a few things to check out.

The best part? We’ll do the driving on either AcelaNortheast Regional or one of our other routes to NYC. So head over to the cafe car and get that hot chocolate while you plan your stops n’ shops.
