An epic multi-state rail adventure beckons for those with a desire to experience America’s cinematic landscapes and breathtaking diversity. This coast to coast journey is nothing short of spectacular, covering thousands of miles and encompassing a host of unforgettable attractions between the vibrant east coast city of New York and the cosmopolitan delights of San Francisco on the shores of the Pacific, including Washington DC, Chicago, the Grand Canyon and Hollywood. The great railways which so embodied the pioneer spirit are still the most romantic and comfortable way to make your way across the USA ‘from sea to shining sea’.
We arrive in Denver this morning and take a brief orientation tour of the ‘Mile High City’ passing by the State Capitol Building with its gold dome and where one of its steps is exactly one mile above sea level. We transfer to our hotel, the Sheraton for the next two nights.
