    About AMTRAK

    Whether you are seven or seventy years old, train travel is one of the best ways to experience this great country. When you take the train your vacation starts the minute you board. Choosing a destination that you can get excited about is easy when you look at all the fascinating cities and attractions that can be easily reached by Amtrak. From the start of your trip you will notice the difference between train and airplane travel. Train travel does not require tedious and time-consuming check-ins. Superliner trains feature roomy, first-class type seating, a full dining car with complete meals, a Sightseer Lounge Car with floor to ceiling windows and a Caf-Bar downstairs. Amtrak San Joaquin, Capitol Corridor and Pacific Surfliner trains feature comfortable seating with light meals and snacks available in the Caf Car.

    Train travel, like any other type of transportation, may be subject to delays and postponement. We recommend not making sightseeing or show reservations for day of arrival. So sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
