Travel from one coast to another and watch the American landscape reinvent itself before your eyes.
Amtrak's Sunset Limited takes you between Florida and California, along our southern-most route. Settle back and watch the Gulf Coast, Bayou Country, Mexican border, southwestern deserts and California mountains pass by your window.
Three trains depart weekly in each direction. Services on the Sunset Limited include Superliner Sleeping and Dining Car accommodations, feature movies in the evening, and spectacular views from the renowned Sightseer Lounge Car.
Deboard in Alpine, Tex. to visit Big Bend National Park, or Tallahassee, Fla. to see alligators sun themselves at the world's deepest freshwater springs. If luxury is more your thing, Maricopa, Ariz. is the gateway to Phoenix and the resorts and spas of Scotsdale.
In season, onboard National Park Guides provide insights about the changing vista and natural heritage of the region you'll travel through. Sit back, relax, and learn as you take in the desert and coastal landscapes of this great American panorama.
As part of the Trails & Rails program, National Park Service guides from the Amistad National Recreation Area are onboard the Sunset Limited between New Orleans and Houston.
Trails & Rails is an innovative partnership program between Amtrak and the National Park Service. This program provides educational opportunities to Amtrak passengers for the purpose of fostering appreciation of America's natural and cultural heritage.
