Thanks to the unforgettable sights, this scenic Amtrak route is often noted as the most beautiful train ride in North America.
With floor-to-ceiling windows you can enjoy the Lounge Car which is fully stocked with snacks and drinks for your journey through the mountains.
The views offered by this train are insane, especially when traveling through the Comanche National Grasslands, which are unexpected in a state like Colorado.
The Southwest Chief offers a unique perspective of the state. You’ll see more grasslands, pueblos, plains, and a different type of climate compared to traditional ski towns and the Colorado Rockies.
