Although traveling by plane is quicker than going by land or sea, it can be expensive, and you miss out on some lovely views. If planned right, road trips can be both fun and entertaining, but you are still driving. It’s hard to rest and traffic sucks.
If you’ve been wondering about a way to travel where you can tour and be comfortable at the same time, why not do it by train? A ride on Amtrak’s Coast Starlight could be just the ride you didn’t know you needed to take.
Why? The route up and down the West Coast offers the chance to take in breathtaking views while riding in luxury. It is a 35-hour trip between Los Angeles, California and Seattle, Washington and is one of the rail line’s most popular. If you decide to coast it the whole way through, you’ll be in for a treat.
Panoramic windows in the observation cars allow you to take in the sights which include beaches, snow-capped mountains, natural parks, stunning coastlines, and cityscapes. There is so much to see, and among the numerous photo-worthy opportunities Amtrak promotes, there is the picturesque beauty of Klamath Falls, Mt. Shasta, the Pacific Ocean, and San Luis Obispo.
