Seattle to Los Angeles - the easy way.
Board the Amtrak Coast Starlight train at Seattle for a 36 hour train ride from North to South via Washington, Oregan and most of California.
We booked a roomette, a two person compartment which has comfortable seats by day and is converted, by your steward, into bunks for sleeping. And within the cost were all meals, coffee / tea, juices and water. Plus, for sleeping car customers, exclusive use of the Parlour Car.
And the journey - brilliant. Lovely views and a smooth ride with attentive staff throughout. Two days of relaxing and letting the world roll past. But, if you're the person who gets stressed at red traffic lights then it probably isn't for you, as the train travels at about 40 mph and can be stopped in a loop for half an hour at a time. But it arrived on time at Los Angeles.
If your like us, and are not in a hurry, then this is a lovely alternative to the bustle and frustration of airports. Go on have a go, it's very different to UK train travel!
