Train travel around usa july /august

Jump to last reply

Our (my husband and I, both retirees from downunder) first idea of buying a used car or motorhome to travel around the USA was dead almost as soon as I had considered it.
What we have decided to do, is something like this: fly to Los Angeles, stay there a few days, take a train north to Seattle (maybe stop in San Fracisco), stay there a few days. Then take a train to New York stopping "älong the way" a few days in East Glacier Park, Chicago and Washington DC. From New York we would take a train to Atlanta for a few days and from there to New Orleans and after a few days another train to Los Angeles and then fly home.
We like train travel as that way we will see a lot of the country. I am sure the plan (places) mentioned can be improved on, added/changed/taken out. Like if Chicago and New Orleans are not recommended in summer, maybe we should instead take in some other places (like areas north of New York).
The reason we are doing this "route" is that we wish to see Seattle and New York ("maybe" New Orleans) and we wouldn't mind giving Chicago a miss if we can find a better train route. Starting the train trip from Los Angeles is sensible as that is where we land first.
Any tips/suggestions/advice ?
I'm truly grateful for any input, we do wish to have a memorable trip.
