No other trip shows you the incredible scenic panorama you'll witness
from the windows of the Sunset Limited.
The cities and sights along the way read like a vacationer's dream:
Miami, Orlando, the Gulf Coast beaches of Pensacola, Mobile, New Orleans,
a towering bridge across the Mississippi, the cypress swamps of bayou
In Texas alone, your itinerary includes Houston, San Antonio, the
high country of the Del Norte Mountains -- a good base for side trips
to Carlsbad Caverns and Las Cruces, New Mexico, where pronghorn antelope,
mule deer and long-eared jackrabbits abound in the storied valley of
El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley.
Then you're into New Mexico and Arizona, and visions of distant mountains
and extinct volcanos, of ancient Native American settlements and fabulous
rock formations, of brilliant skies and perhaps the most beautiful sunset
you'll ever see, and finally to California and the city of Los Angeles.
It's a journey you'll never forget, a fabulous 3,000-mile odyssey across
eight states. And around almost every turn is another vacation waiting
for you to arrive.
