Who doesn’t love a fun railroad adventure? There are many modes of transportation travelers can choose to take nowadays, and railroad adventures are definitely one of the more enjoyable as traveling by train is seen as a relaxing yet fun way to get to where one needs to go. The Coast Starlight Rail has been traveling from Los Angeles to Seattle since Amtrak started and is therefore one of the first long-distance train treks to be placed into service.

Los Angeles to Seattle

The Coast Starlight Rail passes right through Santa Barbara, through the San Francisco Bay area, through Sacramento and then through Portland before stopping in its last location in Seattle. The reason why this train route is listed as one of the most spectacular train routes one can take is of course due to the remarkable views  that can be seen along this route. Passengers get to enjoy snow covered mountain peaks, lush green forests, fertile valleys where almond trees, strawberries, more are grown, and varying views of the Pacific Ocean shoreline as one travels further and further up north.
