Coast Starlight: The journey is the vacation on this 35-hour train trip

By NICOLE EVATT | The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES  — It was late Friday night and we were scouring the usual sites touting the top things to do in Los Angeles. Uninspired by our options and facing a long weekend without obligations, my husband and I made a last-minute booking on Amtrak’s Coast Starlight. Ten hours later we’re settling in for a 35-hour train trip spanning 1,377 miles (2,216 kilometers) up California’s picture-perfect coastline and Oregon’s rugged terrain. Seattle may have been the end destination, but this weekend was all about the journey.
