Adam 12 here, running through the summer of 2013 like a madman. It's truly been a blur, with vacations to Wells Beach and Disney World and day trips here, there, and everywhere.

But as much fun as this summer has been with my young family, I keep coming back to last May, when my son and I rode the Amtrak Downeaster for National Train Day. It was one of those perfect days that comes along maybe once a year, if you're lucky.

Since then, I've been keeping my ear to the tracks, so to speak, and just found out that
there's a three-day Downeaster Rail Sale from August 20-22. You can take the train to Freeport, ME (The L.L. Bean mothership, baby!) from any Downeaster station for $10 one-way. Up to two children ages 2 to 15 can ride for $5 one-way when accompanied by a $10 adult fare. Click here for reservations and details.

To put it plainly, traveling by train rules. And so does summertime in Maine. So get out there & make some summer memories on the cheap. And don't forget to take pictures!
