The drive up to Santa Barbara is amazing, with some of the most scenic views in the world. It’s amazing to see the ocean crash into mountainous terrain. But it can also be frustrating, as traffic during certain times of the day can get backed up along Pacific Coast Highway.
Amtrak can solve that problem, and give vacationers an even better look at California’s coastal line. Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner takes routes that cars cannot access, riding alongside pristine beaches.
A weekend getaway to Santa Barbara is about relaxation, which Amtrak also provides. The train gives travelers room to roam as they are not confined to their seats, and people can satisfy their hunger in the train’s dining car.
Travelers can sit back in comfortable seats that offer a lot of legroom, and gaze out the large windows to see the spectacular view. The train also has Wi-Fi, and outlets at every seat.
The Pacific Surfliner stops right in the heart of Santa Barbara, close to the major hotels and resorts. And it is a perfect alternative to driving for people who are taking a day trip to the ‘Jewel of the Pacific’ for the wine tasting tours.
