Subject: Crossing USA by Amtrak
Hi All Which is the best way to cross USA by Amtrak ? E-W or W-E ? We have taken the Californian Zephyr from Chicago to San Francisco but wondered how different the scenery is going the other way. Would we be better taking a new route -the Empire Builder instead? We hope to cross Canada E-W then USA W-E but could reverse our journey. Any ideas of places to stop off at on the way, things to see,hotels and/or B&Bs, restaurants etc to visit, much appreciated.

We always use public libraries for Internet Access when in a foreign country They are usually free and it is interesting to see libraries in other countries. As far as I know Internet Access is always free for a stipulated time in Libraries here in the UK.
