These days, public transportation in Contra Costa County is worth taking a look at. Last week we took AMTRAK from Seattle to Martinez, California. It was a great trip, AMTRAKemployees go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and the sightseeing was incredible.
The Coast Starlight runs through Puget Sound to Portland and then into the Cascade mountain in Oregon. Breath taking views of snow covered mountains and pristine lakes.
Gas prices in Walnut Creek are increasing faster than a speeding Prius. Alternative ways to get around are becoming a necessity. Take the AMTRAK or the bus, it’s great for people watching too.
