With its sleeping, dining, and private bathroom accommodations, the concept is a great one. Once at your destination, you could rent a hybrid car or even take a multi-day bike tour. I just wish that Amtrak offered more competitive rates to flying. If you’ve got the time, I recommend looking into the following lines.
Great Amtrak Train Rides
- Silver Service/Palmetto line services many cities along the East Coast
- California Zephyr route runs between Chicago and San Francisco
- Empire Builder route runs between Chicago and Seattle
- Empire Service train runs throughout New York State
- Southwest Chief route runs between Chicago and Los Angeles
- Virginia route runs throughout the state of Virginia
