Get Here By Train
Travel through time and space on Amtrak’s Empire Builder, arriving twice daily at the Whitefish Train Depot — a national historic landmark. Traveling daily between Chicago and Seattle/Portland, the train provides a perfect way to experience the rugged splendor of the American West, an exciting adventure through majestic wilderness, following the footsteps of early pioneers.
From Chicago, you'll have magnificent views of the Mississippi and see the glowing night skyline of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Awake the next morning as you cross the North Dakota plains and travel over the spectacular Gassman Coulee Trestle. Skirting the Missouri, you'll cross into the big wide open spaces of Montana. From Seattle or Portland, witness the majesty of Puget Sound and the Cascades, as well as the Columbia River Gorge and spectacular views of Mt. Hood and Beacon Rock.
When you travel by Amtrak’s Empire Builder, your vacation begins when you climb on board!
