One of our favorite things about taking the train is that everyone (including parents) can enjoy the ride and no one gets stressed about traffic. You can even nap if you want! So when we heard about Brightline’s summer promotion (kids 13 and under ride free from June 1 – September 30) we knew exactly how we were going to spend our summer. Exploring South Florida fun including all the museums, wildlife parks, family-friendly beaches and more without any of the commuting hassle.

We look forward to seeing you on the next train!
