Round trip train rides can be lots of fun for grandchildren. If you are accompanying a child with disabilities, Amtrak will allow a caregiver or shadow to travel free of cost. Take Amtrak to San Juan Capistrano, Los Angeles or other local destinations. Have lunch or just visit the near-by attractions. Amtrak goes to San Diego where you can visit the Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Sea World or other attractions. Annual passes are relatively inexpensive. Call ahead to ask about policies in effect for special needs individuals.
