Does anyone know the price and how long a train ride from Seattle to Spokane is? Also is it an Amtrak train? Thanks!
It is Amtrak.
About an 8 hour trip.
looks like it starts at 98.00 pp or less.
Go to Amtrak.com for more info
The train to Seattle from Spokane leaves around 1:00am. It is Amtrak but it is a totally reserved train. There's only one train a day to Seattle. There are more bus options if you're interested in that and you won't have to leave in the middle of the night. It's usually about a 5 hour drive to Seattle form Spokane. I think the bus takes about 7 dur to stops.
I usually always recommend taking the train, but you may want to consider the bus as this train originates in Chicago. Although it has a pretty good on time record, at 1:40 a.m., it would not be fun if it was running say 4 hours late.
Actually, the train TO Spokane goes to Chi-town, not the other way around so it isn't late that often. It arrives at about 1 am, but my father in law was delayed due to fires in the Cascades. Generally the train would be more fun, but it does take awhile. Sadly, unless you go in the Summer, you do miss a lot of nice scenery since it will be dark. I think it leaves Seattle at 5 pm or so and once a day. It really could be a cooler trip if it left earlier or even more often.
