December 15, 2022- Visiting familyAmtrak Coast Starlight
Pros: The view from the lounge cart was my favorite part! The cafe shop was good too. Not too pricey and they have a wide variety of snacks. Cons: The bathrooms were dirty, and has a great deal of visible damage. The lounge area was also packed most of the time so it hard to find a seat. More seating would be appreciated. Tips: Bring your own USB adapter they do not sell them on the train. The cell service goes in and out so you'll want to pre download all your entertainment.
