Take Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to Enjoy Arts and Culture in San Fransico This Spring

Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

Amtrak passengers traveling between Los Angeles and Seattle can ride Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to the San Francisco bay area this spring to experience the city’s vibrant cultural scene.

Amtrak is part of a promotion with the San Francisco Travel Association titled “49 Hours of SF: Arts & Culture” which encourages visitors to plan a 49 hour getaway with a special package offer.  Through the end of April, stay three or more nights at participating hotels booked at www.49hoursofsf.com and receive 25 percent off the entire stay.

For this partnership, San Francisco Travel Association has decorated an entire Amtrak car as one of the city’s famous people-movers.  This is the first time that Amtrak’s Coast Starlight route has featured a wrapped car.  The “cable car” wrapped car will travel the route (Los Angeles – Seattle) through Ventura, San Luis Obispo, Oakland and other destinations through April 30.

Throughout the 1,377-mile, 36-hour route, passengers on board the Coast Starlight enjoy stunningly beautiful vistas — some of which can only be seen via rail — breathtaking shorelines of the Pacific, dense Northern forests and spectacular peaks of the Cascades, to name a few.  The train also connects the West Coast’s most popular destination cities, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.  More than 35,000 passengers rode the Coast Starlight in January 2013, an increase of 19 percent over the same period last year.
