Just when you thought the American Railroad Industry consisted of only mile long freight trains or passenger services from places you do not live to places you do not want to go, you found this book. I am glad you did.

You found it just in time for your next vacation. Myrtle Beach is one of the most beautiful and exciting vacation spots in the United States if not the world. Train travel is definitely the most exciting and the most scenic, and the least intrusive way to go from place to place in America.

If you choose to ignore the 60 miles from Florence SC to Myrtle Beach that requires a rent-a-car or bus service, you can get there in just over nine hours from Philadelphia by train, all the while enjoying the ambiance of what some may think is from a bygone era.

In this book, you will learn that not only can you get there from here, but the trip will be better than you ever thought it might be. There are lots of great options such as coach or club car service, mini sleepers or full bedrooms, and along the way there is time for a cocktail or two in the dining / bar cars.

When you get to Myrtle Beach, you will find that a world of natural wonderment opens up for your enjoyment. When I wrote this book not too long ago, I had been waiting for fifteen years to go back to Myrtle Beach. As soon as I found that we could get there by train, I asked my wife Pat. She immediately said "y-e-s." Those three little letters mean so much!

While telling you how to get to Myrtle Beach the best way via Amtrak, I was also compelled as a writer to discuss how the US train experience compares with the European and the Chinese experience. And I could not resist fantasizing about what will happen when the US builds high speed rail across the country and what great choices we will have when the timing of flights and train trips become very close.

Like the guy at Men's Warehouse would say: "You're gonna like the way you look on the Amtrak train to Myrtle Beach, and you will look great in Myrtle Beach! Enjoy!
