The train is a WONDERFUL way to see California and a great way to get from city to city without a car. The HoJo is only three miles from the Amtrak station offering routes northward through Santa Barbara to San Francisco and southward to San Diego. You can even take the train eastbound to reach the Grand Canyon and other amazing sites in the American West and beyond!
Some trains offer sleeper cars and premium seating. There's even a bar/restaurant car! There is nothing like traveling on a train - consider it if you've never done it!
ALL ABOARD!! Chooooo choooooo! Happy Travels!
