I am on the Pacific Surfliner now. It's a great way to travel. We have wifi and a Club Car and comfy reclining seats, lots of leg room and the most fabulous views of the Pacific. We just passed Solana Beach and it seemed like we were inches away from the Surfers.
This is our second trip on the train in two weeks.

Yes, it is. It consistently receives the highest reviews of any Amtrak route.

Most of these trips are on the Pacific Surfliner, which I can highly recommend.

I opened this thread, because it was "New" in the newsfeed, but started at the beginning.

Saw Minny's post 2nd one down, and caught my breath. Hadn't looked at the date.

Gosh I miss him.

We were in San Diego two weeks ago and took the Pacific Surfliner up to Fullerton Station. My 87 YO uncle met us and we went home with him and visited a few hours before taking the train back. The train was a great experience. Beautiful trip. I highly recommend it.

We had a rent car and there was no parking at the San Diego stations so we drive up to Solana Beach and caught the train. We enjoyed looking around there, too.

My wife did the driving around San Diego. I don't think I could have handled it. Sometimes 7 lanes across.

Minny is missed here. So sorry he didn't get to take one more big trip as he said he wanted to do in one of his posts in this thread.

When we stayed in Carlsbad, with neighbors from the city, for a Chiefs/Chargers game, we saw that the train was popular. It looked like a fun way to get from one point to another, but didn't do it because you still needed a car once you got to another.

I'll probably never get back, but when we stopped at the station in San Juan Capistrano, I said this would be a neat place to walk around and look for a day.

I love San Diego and Coronado and LaJolla. But not the Freeway driving.

I feel the same.
I wish he and Ann had been able to have that time together to enjoy another trip.
