Following the wagon tracks of the great pioneers, the Zephyr is the flagship of Amtrak's fleet, a super liner with an all-window panoramic lounge car and a tick list of iconic Americana that includes the cornrows of Nebraska, the Rockies, the Sierra Nevada, Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake City and San Francisco.
Sit back, relax and watch the USA go by from your comfortable vantage point as you travel through seven states, and cover 2,438 glorious miles through the very heart of America.
For a snowy wonderland experience, consider the California Zephyr rail journey during the winter months when America's heartland is covered in dazzling snow and you'll be able to gaze out at snow-capped peaks! A truly magical experience, and no crowds!
