Amtrak's Coast Starlight train runs between Los Angeles and Seattle and serves multiple stops along the way. We have taken it several times between Lacey Washington and Sacramento before changing trains and heading on to Bakersfield Ca. In a day when travel either by air or by car on the freeway is filled with stress and frustration, train travel provides relaxation, value and peace of mind.
We book a roomette for the overnight trip. The "Parlour Car", unique to the Coast Starlight, is the jewel of the train. It's perfect for taking in the magnificent scenery, meeting fellow travelers, enjoying a glass of wine etc or a nice tasty meal. The Dining Car is another option. The food has never disappointed and on-board service has generally been up to expectation or better.
The luxury of a bygone era lives on in this experience. We have another trip planned for April and can hardly wait.
