Enjoy a Fall Getaway Aboard the San Joaquin

Unwind your way through the lush quilt of farmland and vineyards of the Central Valley aboard the San Joaquin.

Bordered on the west by the coastal mountain ranges, and on the east by Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia and Death Valley National Parks, a trip on the San Joaquin is a bit of a destination in itself.

With multiple daily trips between the San Francisco Bay Area and Bakersfield, it's as convenient as it is scenic. Other stops along the way include Stockton, Modesto, Merced, Martinez and Fresno.

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 along the San Joaquin for less.
