Seattle - Portland - Los Angeles
The Coast Starlight links the greatest cities on the West Coast. En route daily between Seattle and Los Angeles, the Coast Starlight passes through Portland, Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Barbara. 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.
Length of Trip
Portland is a laid-back city that takes a few things very seriously: bicycles, books, and smoked meat. The city has an impressive cycling network that leaves the bike-less traveller looking on mournfully as happy people tear across the city's many bridges. In Portland you will find the most delicious ribs and sausage on earth, and a used bookstore that should have its own ZIP code. The historic White Eagle tavern is worth a visit. It is also an excellent choice of accommodation if you fancy a chance encounter with one of the spirits alleged to haunt the place since its wild days as a bootlegger's den and upstairs brothel.
