I know many of you have taken this trip. TrainNut was up there a few weeks ago with his family and couldn't say enough good things about it. I'm thinking of going up there with my wife sometime in August, and I need some feedback. Like for instance, any suggestions on where to stay, or where to eat while up there? How about the class of travel, I see fares range from $65 up to $149, is upgrading worth it? We were thinking about upgrading to "Premium class" since we won't have any kids with us. Beyond that, it seems a bit pricey. Some of the hotels have a package deal, has anyone used one of those that they'd recommend? TrainNut mentioned that there was a hotel right across the street from the station, I'll look into that one too... Any help would be appreciated, including side trips.
