Southshore Line train from downtown Chicago to Michigan City Indiana

South Shore line sign as seen from inside the train

Whenever I find myself on a non-L, non-subway train (Metra, Amtrak, etc), I think “Now why don’t I use this as a mode of transportation more often??”.  At about 10 bucks a pop, we were able to get from Millennium Station in downtown Chicago IL to Michigan City Indiana (Home of the Lighthouse Outlet Mall).

Even the simplest of  views can seem more interesting from the comfort of a train that is replacing the effort (and risk) of driving.
