Amtrak Coastal StarlightIf you are not on a tight schedule, I highly recommend taking the Coastal Starlight train by Amtrak all the way down the coast. It is less expensive than flying, there is tons of leg room, a really cool "observation" car that has extra wide windows, a food car, and if your feeling classy you can even spring for extra luxuries such as a wine tasting or high end dining options. The best part is, the views are amazing the entire trip, as the train passes through some difficult to access areas. I found myself taking pictures constantly, so bring a camera.
