Scenic rail journeys, vibrant autumn foliage and savings await you on two spectacular Amtrak routes — venture through America's heartland, the Rockies, Sierra Nevadas and the American Southwest aboard either the Southwest Chief or the California Zephyr. Enjoy even better views in the Sightseer Lounges, and thanks to our Dining Cars you can grab a bite while the majestic landscapes and the gentle rocking of the train transport you like never before.
With daily trips between Chicago and Los Angeles, it's as convenient as it is scenic. Make your way from the Windy City through the Heartland and then south and west as wheat fields give way to mountains and canyons and the deserts of the legendary Southwest. If you're starting your journey in Los Angeles, you'll still save big on your fall adventure.
One of the most spectacular train routes in America, the California Zephyr travels from Chicago across the Great Plains, over the Rockies and Sierra Nevadas and on to the San Francisco Bay Area. You can also start your travel from Emeryville, CA and still experience the majesty of this uniquely American route.
No matter where you board and no matter where you're headed, when you book early, Amtrak will take you and a companion to any destination aboard the Southwest Chief or the California Zephyr for less.
