The Amtrak Texas Eagle from Los Angeles across the southwest and into the heart of Texas is one of my favorite Amtrak trips to take for a couple reasons: 1. the famed burrito lady of El Paso and 2. the views are incredible.
Rachel Hofstetter and Irina Gonzalez hit a lot of solid points on why the Texas Eagle and trains at large are so awesome. A huge one for Rachel and myself: the onboard community. #AmtrakLIVE facilitated this community, sure, but even if you’re riding solo, there are plenty of people ready to enjoy the Amtrak Texas Eagle views with you over a Sierra Nevada.
Just don’t forget to tip your bartender.
