Photo of the Week!

California Zephyr

This edition of Photo of the Week is brought to you by Dragana who snapped this heart-warming pic while riding in the observation car of our California Zephyr!

The California Zephyr is one of the ultimate family adventures! The 51-hour trip from Chicago to Emeryville, Calif., means tons of quality time onboard, free meals if you make a sleeper reservation and endless views as your train makes its way through some of the country’s most beautiful scenery.

This Independence Day weekend, we think it’s the best way to celebrate, freedom, family and ‘Merica!
