Postcard from the Pacific NW: Amtrak to Vancouver (PHOTOS)
I went on a pre-Olympics trip to Vancouver several days before the XXI Winter Games opened, and I'm planning another via Amtrak Cascades next week.
Above are scenes from Everett, WA to Vancouver, BC. There is direct service to Vancouver, BC from Portland, OR and now two round-trips daily from Seattle, WA. Don't forget your passport. All aboard!
