It's hardly a secret. In fact, you've probably heard so much about California's mix of coast, mountains, and cities you feel like you've already visited. Well now's the time to go—or go back. Originating in Seattle, the Coast Starlight hits Olympia, Portland, Klamath Falls, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles. And why not take your time? Get the ticket that allows for frequent stops to wander the lush Cascades, the high Sierra, Big Sur, or the Monterey Peninsula. See www.amtrakwest.com/coaststarlight.
