Should I catch the train from NYC to New Orleans

Jump to last reply

I looking at catching the train (Amtrak Viewliner Roomette) from New York to New Orleans in mid to late October. But only if there's lots to see on the way. It's a 30-hour trip and this particular fare includes reclining seats that convert into a bed. Can any one recommend it, or should I just fly and spend more time in New Orleans. I don't have a lot of time and thought it would be a good way to see as much of the countryside as possible. Any advice? Thanks very much
