Amtrak relaunches the Cascade route through the Pacific Northwest this fall.

We’re suckers for a good sale and boy do we love train travel, so this announcement from Amtrak is a real wing dinger. From now through Jan. 20, Amtrak’s USA Rail Pass, which covers 10 rides, is available for $299, a savings of a whopping $200 off the regular price, making it even easier for you to achieve your 2023 travel goals.

With the USA Rail Pass, customers can see the country and explore sights at more than 500 destinations using up to 10 travel segments over a 30-day period for less than $30 per ride. So if you’re someone who’s planning your annual travel, consider this your sign to get going.

Amtrak is offering service across the country aboard 14 world-famous routes, including our favorites like the Coast Starlight, California Zephyr, and Southwest Chief. The Coast Starlight runs from Portland all the way down to Los Angeles, and is a beautiful way to view the changing Western coastline, from the lush forest of the Pacific Northwest to the sun-drenched coasts of California. The California Zephyr, known as one of the most beautiful train rides in the world, starts in Chicago and then goes through the plains of Nebraska, cutting through the heart of the Rockies in Denver and Salt Lake City, then continues on through Emeryville, California. The Southwest Chief takes travelers though towering red rocks and canyons through the Old West and cities like Phoenix, Albuquerque, and Santa Fe, ending in Los Angeles. All of them are incredible rides and worthy of your 2023 travel bucket list.
