During a rail tour of the USA you can experience the immensity of Arizona's Grand Canyon which contrasts against the exuberance and vivacity of California's fashionable Los Angeles. You may prefer the Bohemian ambience of cool San Francisco which is home to precipitous snaking streets and the majestic Golden Gate Bridge.

For nature lovers Yosemite National Park is a vast wilderness and is home to mighty waterfalls, picturesque lakes, granite cliffs and giant redwood trees, and if you are fortunate enough you may spot one of the great black bears.
