En route daily between Los Angeles and Seattle, the Coast Starlight train passes through the Santa Barbara, the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento and Portland. Widely regarded as one of the most spectacular of all train routes, the Coast Starlight links the greatest cities on the West Coast.
The scenery along the Coast Starlight route is unsurpassed. The dramatic snow-covered peaks of the Cascade Range and Mount Shasta, lush forests, fertile valleys and long stretches of Pacific Ocean shoreline provide a stunning backdrop for your journey.
This legendary train features bi-level Superliner coaches and sleeping cars, along with exclusive amenities. The Dining Car offers fresh cuisine served on real china and table linens. Coach passengers enjoy big, comfortable seats, plenty of legroom and new, larger pillows, plus available at-seat meal service.
Wi-Fi® is only available to sleeping car passengers in the Pacific Parlour Car.
The Pacific Parlour Car is available exclusively for sleeping car passengers wishing to relax, celebrate or socialize and enjoy the spectacular views in comfort. Each sleeping car passenger will receive complimentary meals (with the exception of alcohol) in the Dining Car. These passengers can also choose the Pacific Parlour Car as a full-service dining alternative for lunch and dinner. With coffee and bar service, and an onboard theater, this "living room on rails" will make your Coast Starlight experience unforgettable.
An innovative partnership program between the National Park Service and Amtrak, the Trails & Rails program provides Amtrak passengers with educational opportunities to foster an appreciation of a selected region's natural and cultural heritage and renews the long tradition of associating railroads with National Parks.
The Coast Starlight has two Trails & Rails programs on board. Juan Bautista De Anza National Historical Trail hosts a program between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo, California, continuing on to Oakland, California during the summer. Klondike Goldrush National Historical Park hosts a program between Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon.
