Ditch the Car and Take the Train to SLO this Summer

California didn’t just become known as the Golden State for nothing, and we encourage you to see why. Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner is the ultimate way to see the California coastline from the comfort of your own seat, and their current BOGO promotion is too good to pass up.

Taking the Pacific Surfliner is the perfect way to “SLO down” and enjoy the picturesque journey to the Central Coast. Stretching all the way from San Diego to San Luis Obispo, there is no time like right now to enjoy all that Amtrak has to offer.

A few highlights of Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner 350-mile service:

  1. Downtown San Diego
  2. San Juan Capistrano
  3. Disneyland
  4. Ventura
  5. Edna Valley
