We're at that point in winter when everyone is starting to get a bad case of cabin fever.  You just want to get out and do something fun.

Maybe you live in Maine and have been thinking about taking your special someone on a weekend trip to Boston.  You'll have dinner at one of Boston's better restaurants, take in a Bruins or Celtics game, and have a drink at The Harp.

Or, you live in Boston and have been thinking about making a trip to Portland or Freeport.

Whichever direction you're heading, skip the drive and take the train instead.

Right now, you can save big on Downeaster tickets.

According to the train line's website, the Downeaster, which makes daily trips between Brunswick and Boston, is offering a few ticket deals.
