    Inisght Travel Info

    Looks like about a 22 hour long drive down to Tempe and airline fares are not looking favorable. Does anyone have any info on taking a train from Kansas City To Flagstaff or somewhere close to Tempe. Thanks

    Amtrak is very expensive and doesn't seem to have much available.. no cheaper than flying

    Flagstaff is still over 2 hours by car to Phoenix. If you take a bus, probably 3 hours or better. You will have to rent a car or take a bus out of Flagstaff. Unless you have all kinds of time to burn taking a train and all the logistics involved (probably 4 days, 2 out and 2 back), flying is the best option.

    The good news is that hotwire has some good rates in the area. A 3 1/2 star on their was $39 and a 2 1/2 star in the ASU area was $39 also.


    ďAlso, I met a lot of Iowa State fans and I donít want to leave any of that behind.Ē - DARIUS DARKS on Staying a CLONE!!!
