Have done the Coast Starlight. Very highly recommended at least as a once-in-a-lifetime trip. With one small kid or 2 very young ones, a single roomette is doable. It does take a long time, but that's the point. I recommend aiming for a full moon. The food is not terrible and that apple pie à la mode while gliding through gorgeous scenery is a classic Americana memory for me.

Quote from scrapplejoe :
wouldnt it just be easier to fly? about the same price and get you to your location in 3 hours instead of 20
Yes. As someone who loves public transit amtrak is awful and this deal reminded me of that. We are planning a chi-no trip and thinking this could be a fun drunken ride but it's 20hrs+ and the website is still awful. It will cost a third as much (with the discount) to just fly and we'll get there in 3hrs.

It was more fun to be stuck in ohare for 24hrs than it was to travel from oakland to denver on amtrak.

Weird, so many are into this. I did an amtrak up north and it overall wasnt great. Rather uncomfortable. I romanticized the idea of taking a train cross country and just was more disappointed than not. Unless things have gotten better, I would pass.

NOTE: I did not get the 'premium' tickets, I did get the base ticket.

Amtrak used to be amazing. They would allow any bags, any amount of bags. Then you could cancel right before the train leaves, no questions asked. Now there are cancel fees. Too bad.

Quote from FeistyRaccoon394 :
Traveling by train cost more than Traveling by rental Car or Plane while taking longer. Lol America train system is a joke.

Straight up embarrassing let me know when we finally have high speed railroads
When was the last time you rented a car, 2019? Your chance of finding a rental car company that will let you 1-way drive across country is slightly easier than finding a Trek mountain bike right now.

Almost any of them will let you do it--it just costs a lot more.

Took a trip from San Francisco to Riverside to visit friends years ago. I believe I was in the California Zephyr and it was one of my favorite trips of all time. I fancied myself a bit of a writer and spent most of the trip looking pensively out into the landscape with my pen and pad. Sigh.

Ok I figured it out. The price listed is for one-way, one room, and without any accompanying children (if the room is occupied by two adults) at off-peak departure time. Not unexpected because it's Amtrak but could still be a good deal for couples. Thanks anyway.

Quote from Vascodegama :
God, their website sucks. It has always sucked. It doesn't even give you recommendations or show a flexible fare calendar. If there is no train on that day, it doesn't say a damn thing. Waste of what could have been revenue. Amtrak...It's for the birds.
Same thing I was just thinking, tried to book a journey but its over saturated with too many things going on, they need a calendar with prices to be able to choose dates.

If anyone has questions, feel free to ask!
If I just wanted to take a trip just for the scenic experience, do they have round trip where I can come back to where I left from?
