One of my favorite long-distance trips on Amtrak was on the Chicago-Seattle/Portland Empire Builder and writer of the Washington Post has captured the spirit and adventure of this unique way to travel.

She and her family took the two-night trip from Chicago to Portland in May and had a great time. Not only did the kids have a very unique experience, but she and her husband enjoyed settling into the routine that only long-distance train travel affords.

One thing I would have suggested to her… a stopover at Glaicer Park, Mont., as I did. The Glacier Park Lodge is a true treasure in a park that’s unlike anything anywhere.

Hope you enjoy the story.
