Arches National Park Tours

#Arches National Park is one of five National Parks in #Utah. Each of these “Mighty Five” parks claims its own way of showcasing the magnificent geologic diversity of the #Colorado #Plateau. Arches National Park Tours showcase the more accessible of more than 2,000 arches – the highest concentration of arches on the planet. Driving and hiking through this #Jurassic aged wonderland provides a glimpse back in time when gentle geologic forces from deep below the surface bulged upward to crack the surface sandstones into fins. Telling you the secret of how these fins of sandstone then became delicate ribbons of stone suspended in mid-air is a mystery we will leave for the tour. Step right this way!

Desert Solitaire & Arches Park

Arches National Monument was set aside in 1929 when Ed Abbey, famed monkey wrencher for the environmental movement, was just a babe. By the late 1960’s Arches was prepping a promotion from “monument” to “park” and Abbey was right there in the lonely backcountry working as the one-and-only backcountry ranger. Abbey’s time spent in the desert (feeling conflicted about keeping it to himself and sharing the beauty of arches with the “tourists”) is cleverly documented in his nationwide-environmental-cult-inducing book “Desert Solitaire”.

Arches National Park boasts the highest density of natural arches in the world with more than 2,000 – 43 of which have collapsed since 1977. 150 million years in the making, and we are lucky enough to see the show!

#CoastStarlight

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TO LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Driving the Pacific Coast Highway is an iconic American road trip, but to really get the full effect of the stunning seaside cliffs, take what many call Amtrak’s most beautiful train ride, the Coast Starlight. It’ll take you 36 hours to take the 1,377-mile trip, but you’ll hit all the highlights such as San Francisco Bay, the snow-covered Cascades, and Puget Sound. Travel in style, get the upgraded package with a private sleeper car.

White Pass and Yukon Route Railway

#SKAGWAY, #ALASKA

Train going through mountains

This breathtaking 2.5-hour, 40-mile, round-trip train journey will have riders thinking back to a time when prospectors adventured to the Yukon in search of fortune during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. The train leaves Skagway and climbs 3,000 feet in just 20 miles — taking riders past glaciers, mountain lakes, towering trestles, and scenic waterfalls. The White Pass and Yukon Route is a piece of Americana that can’t be missed.

#CaliforniaZephyr

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS TO SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

Train going through rocky landscape next to the Colorado river

The California Zephyr took its maiden trip in 1949 and still draws tons of travelers to this once-in-a-lifetime scenic trip across America’s heartland. The Zephyr comes complete with four vista domes that provide passengers with breathtaking scenery as you pass through the Rockies, across the desert country of Nevada and Utah, and  the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains in California. This scenic and historic train route promises to showcase the heart of Gold Rush country on its two-day, 2,800-mile rail journey.

#SouthwestChief

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS TO LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Sedona National Park at sunset

Once dubbed the “Train of the Stars,” the Southwest Chief was America’s first all-Pullman sleeping car train. Today, you don’t have to be a celebrity to take the same route between the Windy City and L.A. You can still enjoy a sleeping car and some of the nation’s most iconic sights such as the red cliffs of Sedona, the Grand Canyon, the Rockies, and Arizona’s missions.

The Grand Canyon Railway

#GRANDCANYON, COLORADO

Grand canyon railway train

You’ll definitely get a feel for the “Wild West” as you take a ride on the restored cars of the Grand Canyon Railway. The 65-mile trip will take you across the high desert to the South Rim of the canyon, offering terrific views of America’s most iconic, natural landmark. The trip features Old West entertainment complete with authentic characters passing on folklore and musicians providing a hand-clapping and foot-stomping good time.

#SunsetLimited

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA TO NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA

Mountains with golf course in front

You would be hard-pressed to find a train trip with a more diverse slice of the U.S. than the Sunset Limited. This 2,000-mile mega trip includes it all. From the golden deserts of the Southwest to the rugged plains of Texas to Louisiana’s Bayou, the Sunset Limited will be sure to please both train enthusiasts and novices alike. Along the way, the train makes stops in Palm Springs, Phoenix, El Paso, and San Antonio before pulling into the station in New Orleans. So sit back and relax as the panorama of America’s coastal and desert landscapes slides by your window.

Alaska Coastal Classic

#ANCHORAGE, #ALASKA TO #SEWARD, #ALASKA

Train tracks going past Chugach mountains

Alaska has some of the best scenery around and a cruise isn’t the only way to enjoy its magnificent wildernesses. Hop aboard the Coastal Classic and ride the 114-mile journey from Anchorage to Seward. You’ll have to plan your excursion because the train only runs from mid-May to mid-September. Be on the lookout for bald eagles and whales as the train takes you past the Chugach Mountains and along the Turnagain Arm waterway. Then it’s off into the wilds of the Kenai Peninsula backcountry for fantastic views of ancient glaciers. Combine this train trip with an Alaska cruise on a Small Ship. NOW is the time to make your reservations! JESS@FriendsTravel.com

Empire Builder

#CHICAGO, #ILLINOIS TO #SEATTLE, #WASHINGTON

Empire Builder train going over a bridge

History buffs will love a ride on the Empire Builder. The route traces parts of the Lewis and Clark Trail from the heart of America to the towering evergreens of the Pacific Northwest. This 46-hour trip is a fantastic way to see a big chunk of the U.S. From Chicago, you’ll cross the mighty Mississippi, see Montana’s Glacier National Park, and pass chug past the Cascade Mountains on your way to Seattle’s Puget Sound.

#USAbyTrain #FriendsTravelWestHollywoodCa90069 #JessKalinowsky JESS@FriendsTravel.com

Who remembers the old jingle “See the USA in your Chevrolet?” We now you can do it train. Take your time!

Loop from Boston to California and back on the ultimate

US train trip – begin and end in any city along the route!

THERE REALLY IS something special about traveling by train. Softly moving side to side while the world whizzes by your window, reflecting upon the wonders of nature. You have free WiFi, knocking out some emails and scrolling through social media. and gazing out the window! Whatever your train activity of choice, it is a magical way to see places you never would by car and typically only see from above in an airplane.

It is also a fantastic way to see all — or almost all — of America as trains can take you to all four corners of the nation and every point in between. The bus-and-train-travel experts at #FriendsTravelWestHollywoodCa90069 has planned a spectacular itinerary that loops around the lower 48, taking you through deserts, mountain ranges, great plains and great lakes, with dozens of cool stops along the way. It doesn’t hit every state — just over half, actually — but it does show you just how big our country really is, and how beautiful. And it may be the most efficient way to see it all. We take care of all of your train travel arrangements, your local hotel arrangements, local sightseeing, ground transportation where needed, everything, from A-Z!

Leg one: Boston, Massachusetts, to Washington, DC

Length: 8 hours, 11 minutes

Though you can really begin your journey anywhere along this route,  we are starting in the far northeastern corner of the country in a little town called Boston, Massachusetts. Here, you will board the very un-glamorous Northeast Regional, a commuting favorite for business travelers connecting all the major cities of the northeast.

The trip will take you through seven states on your way to the nation’s capital, when you have got some time you might want to step off and check out Providence, Rhode Island, on the way. It has one of the best Little Italys in America, plus five colleges and universities right in town. You should also definitely take a few hours and get off at Penn Station in Manhattan. Because what is a trip around the US without at least one photo in Times Square? Catch a few Broadway Plays [we have the ticket connections!]

Leg two: Washington, DC, to New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA street cars

Length: 26 hours, 2 minutes

The first long leg of your journey takes you from DC deep into the heart of Dixie aboard the Amtrak Crescent. It’s a 26-hour trip, so if you’re planning to plug straight through, we recommend booking a roomette or bedroom. Then again, compare that to the price of getting a lay-flat seat on an airplane, and this seems like a bargain.

The ride takes you through seven southern states — Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana — before dropping you in the Crescent City. If you’re keen to get off the train, make a stop in Greenville, South Carolina, and eat your way through the best small food city in America. And spend a couple of days exploring Atlanta before heading west. Charlotte, Greensboro, and Birmingham also have stops when  you want a real southern tour. Stop-over in any city along the way.

Leg three: New Orleans, Louisiana, to Los Angeles, California

Length: 46 hours, 35 minutes

The Amtrak Sunset Limited is probably the best way to take in the sprawling desert-scapes of the American Southwest. It’s also a fantastic way to learn how big Texas is, exactly, as you’ll spend nearly an entire day of this leg rumbling through the Lone Star State. This is another ride where it’s worth the value for the sleeper cabins, but if you’re looking to break the trip up, you’ll find plenty of cool stops along the way.

Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso all have stops along the Sunset Limited, as do Tucson, Arizona, and Palm Springs. Though you just want to gaze out the window at the red rocks and blue sky, nobody’s going to blame you.

Leg four: Los Angeles, California, to Seattle, Washington

Length: 29 hours, 1 minute

Driving up the Pacific Coast Highway is one of the great scenic American road trips. Of course, assuming you do crazy stuff like keep your eyes on the road when you drive, it can sometimes be tough to truly appreciate the grandeur of everything you’re driving through. Hop aboard the Coast Starlight and you will get the majesty of California with no road to focus on as your train travels up the coast through green mountains dropping into the crashing Pacific.

Once you’ve cleared the central coast you may want to take a day and explore Sacramento, one of the more underrated restaurant cities in the US. And get out in Portland and bike along the Willamette River before cruising through a few of its famous breweries. From there, it’s a few short hours to Seattle’s King Street Station. When you want to take a little bonus ride, jump on the Amtrak Cascades up to Vancouver, BC, for even more spectacular northwest scenery.

FREE BONUS: When stopping over in Los Angeles we will host you to a fine dining restaurant, where you might see some “Hollywood stars”, no guarantee, but possibly!

Leg five: Seattle, Washington, to Chicago, Illinois

Length: 45 hours, 15 minutes

Though it would be hard to pick a scenic highlight of a train trip around the US, the second day of this leg is hard to beat as the Amtrak Empire Builder goes headlong into Glacier National Park. It’s as close to a train trip through Switzerland as you’ll find in the US, with your train barreling past snow-capped mountains and vast alpine lakes before dipping into the flatlands of North Dakota and Minnesota.

When you are looking to break the trip,  we suggest spending a couple of days in Fargo, a city that offers far more than its namesake film would suggest. When you are lucky enough to go during fall, you absolutely must tailgate a North Dakota State football game. Even during other times of the year, Fargo is the epitome of Midwestern hospitality and has some fantastic beers you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Leg six: Chicago, Illinois, to Cleveland, Ohio

Length: 6 hours, 5 minutes

After your massive trek from the West Coast, take a few days and enjoy the Windy City with all its diehard baseball and artery-clogging food. Once you’re sufficiently stuffed, jump aboard the second-shortest leg of your trip, a scant six-hour ride aboard the Amtrak Capitol Limited to Cleveland. You’ll roll over Lake Erie as you venture into Cleveland, narrowly missing Michigan but getting a second Great Lake along your tour.

Once in Cleveland, you’ll find a surprisingly vibrant city where you can eat at James Beard award-winning restaurants or traditional Polish cafeterias. When you are doing this trip during summer (highly recommended along the Great Lakes), catch a beachside concert at Edgewater Park. And check out the brilliant turn-of-the-century architecture in Playhouse Square, and in downtown’s many arcades.

Leg seven: Cleveland, Ohio, to Albany, New York

13 iconic landmarks to see in 13 US cities

Many call this the most beautiful state capitol in the country, if not one of the most beautiful buildings, period. It was the most expensive government building of its time, costing $25 million to construct between 1867 and 1899. Visit the Million Dollar Staircase, the War Room, and the Senate Chamber, and you will see what the Versailles-level fuss is all about.

Trivia fodder: Which four New York governors went on to become President?

Greyhound station: 34 Hamilton St, about a 15-minute walk from the capitol

Length: 8 hours, 41 minutes

Your tour of the Great Lakes continues as you roll along Lake Erie aboard the Lake Shore Limited. The ride to Albany is only about eight and a half hours, but once you’re up this way you would be remiss if you didn’t stand among the mist at Niagara Falls. Stop in Buffalo, scarf some wings, and take the half-hour trip to the falls. Be sure to bring your valid passport you can even head over into Canada and do some wine tasting.

Other stops of interest include Rochester, NY where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch at the Genesee Brewhouse before launching into a tour of the Northeast’s best beer town. After that, you’ll enjoy the rocking motion of the train as you nap the rest of the way into Albany.

Leg eight: Albany, New York, to Boston, Massachusetts

Length: 4 hours, 47 minutes

When you Are hard-pressed to do this trip as quickly as possible, you can just stay on the Lake Shore Limited another five hours, roughly, and take it all the way to Beantown. But we suggest taking some time in Albany, if for no other reason to make a trip out to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame.  This is the shortest leg of the trip, and after traveling 6,500 miles and spending 175 hours on trains, it might be nice to complete the loop.

Traveling in the least expensive class of service and following this route, you will see 27 states across seven different Amtrak lines, all for under $1,500. Which is likely less than a road trip would have cost and certainly less than flying.

We strongly recommend the sleeping accommodations. In most cases the meals are included! Great Value!

So if this summer the great expanse of America is calling your name, a big train trip may be just what you are seeking!

Amtrak Empire Builder

Following the old trail of Lewis and Clark, the Empire Builder is a 46-hour journey through the heart of the midwest. Departing from Chicago, take in the gorgeous amber waves of grain, tunnels, deserts and jagged cliffs. Like the Coast Starlight Train, the Empire Builder is run by #Amtrak and offers sleeper cars, making the trip infinitely more comfortable. Seeing Minneapolis glow in the night sky is an awe-inspiring juxtaposition to the mountains of Glacier National Park. Make the ride your own by heading on to the Portland or Seattle for an urban ending to the “big sky Montana” leg of your journey, and be sure to send us pics!

This 35-hour ride travels between #Seattle and #Los Angeles. Traveling down the coast opens with the dramatic snow covered peaks of the #Cascade Mountains, as the land flattens, bountiful forests and sprawling seas present themselves through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the Sightseer Lounge Car. This two-day trek is mercifully taken on the United States’ only sleeper train, complete with the luxuries you’d expect on the #Orient Express, including free food, champagne room service, private bathrooms and a daily turn-down service.

Enjoy three-course meals are served, and in the confined spaces (where the wifi is spotty and the cell service is spottier) strike up conversations with other travelers. You will discover interesting conversation pops up between young adventurers headed to a #hiking trip in #Oregon and retired nomads breathing in the awe-inspiring views that may have been overlooked in their younger years.

Grand Canyon
Why It’s Amazing: It’s big. Real big. We’re talking 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and one mile deep. While it’s not the world’s deepest or widest canyon, it’s undoubtedly the most colorful. The Grand Canyon also exposes ancient Proterozoic and Paleozoic strata—two billion years of earth’s rust-hued history—a visual experience that is not easily captured on film and can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

Secret Viewing Spot: Head toward tranquil Shoshone Point, an unmarked trail on a dirt road off East Rim Drive between mileposts 244 and 245.

When to Go: March to May, before the RVs arrive.

Individual Basis, or with a Group.

New Orleans is so flat that in the 1930s the Works Progress Administration built Monkey Hill at Audubon Zoo to show the city’s children what a hill looked like.

#Louisiana Great River Road
The Route: 70 miles.

Let the #Mississippi River be your guide on this winding route from Baton Rouge through Creole Country to New Orleans. Look out for former sugar plantations and majestic antebellum plantation houses—until the Civil War this area was one of the richest in America. Giant moss-draped oak trees nearly obscure the Creole cottages, surrounded by patches of budding wildflowers.

Where to Stop: Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie. This Greek Revival mansion was built in 1839 and stands at the end of a long avenue lined with oak trees. In New Orleans, check into the buzzy Saint Hotel, in the former Audubon Building in the French Quarter
