Take Amtrak along the coast to San Diego or Santa
If the Metrolink offers a glimpse of L.A.’s workaday world, Amtrak’s
Pacific Surfliner takes you away to a postcard-perfect California.
Whether you head north to sophisticated Santa Barbara or south to
sun-and-surf San Diego, this train trip provides dramatic views of the
coast. And you can kick back without worrying about traffic. The
two-level trains offer outlets for laptops at each seat, a café car for
snacks. and they even have racks for your surfboard.
