As a Gemini, you’re energetic and have a quick wit that others struggle to keep up with. It only makes sense that your sunny disposition would seek The Sunshine State, and several beach destinations along the way.

Coast Starlight AmtrakCancer

2020 is here, and so is your adventure on board the Coast Starlight, which travels through Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, and Los Angeles. As a Cancer, you have a big personality and you’re hard to please, so you’ll take nothing less than a Grand West Coast Train Adventure. The dramatic snow-covered peaks of the Cascade Range and Mount Shasta contrast with the lush forests along the Pacific Ocean shoreline. You have a vivid imagination and it’s time to let your creativity run wild. Perhaps the stunning backdrop of your journey will inspire a new painting or story, who knows?

You want it all, and you’ll get it with this route that takes you from arid desert to coastal landscapes. You’re a bit dramatic, but to be fair, you kind of like the drama. Nothing says drama like the vivid colors and scenes of the American panorama that you’ll see roll past your window. Live as large as your bubbly personality this year, and book your adventure!

Cardinal AmtrakVirgo

The Cardinal, which travels through New York, Washington, DC, Charlottesville, Charleston, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Chicago, is a match made in heaven for you this year.

Capitol Limited AmtrakLibra

Let’s face it, you can be indecisive, so this year you get two routes: Capitol Limited, which goes through Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Chicago; and Lake Shore Limited, which takes you through New York/Boston, Albany, and Chicago. As a Libra you’re pragmatic and exceptionally intelligent, so it only makes sense to combine the stretches of rivers and mountains with the rich culture of big cities like Chicago. You take inspiration from your surroundings and enjoy learning about the histories of old cities and small towns alike. Exploration awaits, Libra!

California Zephyr AmtrakSagittarius

This year, hop on the California Zephyr, which travels through Chicago, Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Oakland. As a Sagittarius, you’re naturally drawn to adventure and it often takes you off the beaten path. A typical vacation won’t do–you need to climb through the heart of the Rockies, then glide west through the snow-capped Sierra Nevadas. You have an infectious energy, and even if you travel alone, you’re bound to make friends. 2020 is the year you experience the majesty of America in the only way that meets your need for a true adventure.

Auto Train AmtrakCapricorn

This year, take the Auto Train, which travels nonstop between Lorton, VA and Sanford, FL. As a Capricorn, you like to be fully in control and you’re very organized. The stress of getting from Point A to Point B could overwhelm you when planning a vacation. With the Auto Train, you can avoid all the traffic of I-95, and you can pack your car as if it were your suitcase, so you can over-pack to your heart’s content. Doesn’t it sound so nice to curl up with a good book until you fall asleep, then wake up in sunny Florida with your car ready to go? So relaxing!

Learn more about the Auto Train.

Southwest Chief AmtrakAquarius

You should hop on the Southwest Chief this year, which travels through Chicago, Kansas City, Albuquerque, Flagstaff, and Los Angeles. The grandeur of the American West appeal to your quirky and rebellious nature. At times, Aquarius, your unique personality makes you feel like an outsider and you tend to be guarded. A train ride through winding through curving canyon passageways and emerge to spectacular views of pristine vistas you’d never be able to see from interstate highways is just what you need when you’re in the mood to be left alone. Take a deep breath and immerse yourself in nature’s breathtaking artistry in the Painted Desert.

Empire Builder Amtrak


This year, experience the rugged splendor of the American West on board the Empire Builder, which travels through Chicago, St. Paul/Minneapolis, Spokane, and Portland/Seattle. As a Pisces, you have a gentle, affectionate demeanor and time alone is precious to you. Disconnect from everyday distractions to soak in the majestic wilderness along portions of the Lewis and Clark trail and Glacier National Park. You’re a romantic at heart and the wide skies of Montana will make you feel like a character in a book. You often seek escapism, and you’ll find it on this route full of adventure.
