Transportation in California

Jump to last reply

Hi! I'm planning on taking a trip this fall to California. I'm planning on quitting my job, traveling to California, couch surfing, writing, WWOOFing, and maybe even living there permanently. I'm very excited about this trip, but I'm in need of your help!

I'm trying to figure out Amtrak options and prices for going from the Boston Area to ideally the San Francisco Area, but I'm not having much luck on the website figuring out which stations are compatible with which lines. And do you save money by buying a train ticket months in advance? Or should I consider looking for cheap airfare in advance? Suggestions? Answers?

From there, I want to explore California as best I can in the time I have, which will hopefully turn out to be the 3 months October, November, and December. I want to know my options well so I can make informed decisions on the fly. Tell me about your experiences? I want to get a better idea of what's worth the time and money, and how much you can see in that amount of time.
