There’s something about traveling on a train that feels so whimsical. It's like time has slowed down and instead of rushing to get to your next destination, you can just sit back and enjoy the views. If you’re planning out your next dream vacation, there’s something you should see. The Coast Starlight train takes you up the entire U.S. west coast for only $99.\nThis Amtrak route takes you all the way from Los Angeles to Seattle on a scenic, 35-hour ride. You’ll get amazing views of so many cities, including Santa Barbara, the San Francisco Bay, Sacramento, and Portland.\nThe scenery is unsurpassed. Think dramatic snow-covered peaks of the Cascade mountain range, the towering Mount Shasta, lush forests, and peaceful valleys.\nThe long stretches of the Pacific Ocean can be seen throughout your journey. It makes for a perfect backdrop along the way.\nSince the trip takes nearly a day and a half to complete (each way), you’ll have some time to hop off at different spots and explore your surroundings.\nWhen it comes to sleeping arrangements, there are several options available.\nThe cheapest option is to book a reserved coach seat and bring comfy items of your own for the trip. The seats are large and there’s plenty of legroom.\nView this post on Instagram Would you take a 1-week trip by train? 🚆 ⠀ In our latest blog post, we listed one of the World's most incredible train journeys you can experience.

There were so many hikes I wanted to do, and I was painfully envious of everyone who had the fitness, technical skills, and wheels to reach them. Now I have a car, a necessity in suburban Nashville, and I live at least a couple hours from the nearest mountains and challenging trails. Just when I'm no longer scared to push myself, to tackle the routes in the Gorge and Cascades and Coast ranges that kept calling my name, they're on the other side of the country. I'm not sure what to do with that irony, especially when what I'm itching for most on a Sunday are tall peaks and alpine lakes and a burn in my lungs. . . #amazing_earth #amazingplaces #mountainstories A post shared by Meghan O'Dea (@live.true.stories) on Nov 24, 2019 at 10:16am PST\nIf you’re looking for more ways to explore the California coastline, you can also check out the best California road trip anyone has ever been on.\nYou'll start in Norcal and work your way down the coast, all the way through San Diego.
