Amtrak's large, shiny train travels to all major US cities and crosses the country's most spectacular scenery. The charm of their Saki charm makes them separate from other ordinary means of transportation, although this may not be the fastest pace, but it is also an ideal choice for sightseeing. You can choose a companion, read a book, relax your mind, sleep on your back, and enjoy the comforts of most homes. It's much more interesting than being isolated above the clouds or driving through endless highway billboards.
Amtrak operates almost all of the US passenger trains. Here is one of the most interesting scenic routes:
California and Wind is one of the best trains in the world, from the heart of the United States and the Colorado Heights via Chicago to San Francisco, and then climbs into the Rocky Mountains through the Oregon Trail. This is how the pioneers came, as did the gold digger, the Pony Express and the first mainland telegraph machine. After Salt Lake City, you will cross the Bonneville Salt Flats and the beautiful but dangerous Sierra Nevada.
Sunset Limited's epic journey will take you from New Orleans to Los Angeles. Before passing through crescent-shaped, egrets, crocodiles, mansions and sugar cane fields, the train passed through the Mississippi River on the Huey P. Long Bridge in Crescent City. After San Antonio, it joined the Rio Grande River and spent a day crossing the sage and mesquite grasslands of Texas.
The Southwest Chief travels between Chicago and the Pacific Ocean, following part of the Santa Fe Trail, which was first used by Native Americans, Spanish conquistadors, trucks and stage coaches. You cross the Mojave Desert and pass the famous Butter Hill Cemetery in Dodge City. You can take the train to the Grand Canyon from Williams, Arizona.
The new moon arrives in New Orleans from New York via the Blue Ridge Mountains and the idyllic Sierra Shenandoah National Park [mountain and cedar]. Outside of Atlanta, it is a sleepy southern town with quaint grocery stores and sunbathing houses. The train also crossed Lake Pontchartrain and was a few feet above the water on a six-mile long causeway.
The Coast Stars run between Seattle and Los Angeles through Washington, Oregon and California. It passes through some of the highest mountains in the United States, such as the volcanic Mount Hood, as well as the green forests and waterfalls of the Twin Peaks. In addition to San Luis Obispo, it runs on high cliffs with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the beach.
