The train then continues westward, passing through the industrial heartlands of Ohio and the expansive plains of Illinois and Iowa before finally climbing up the majestic Rocky Mountains and descending into Denver.

Four sleeping accommodations are available to cater to different comfort levels and budgets. The Roomette is a compact, cozy space ideal for two, with seats that convert into a bed. The Bedroom offers more space, complete with a queen-sized bed and an attached bathroom. The Two-Room Suite provides additional amenities like in-room sinks, restrooms, and showers for those requiring more space. Finally, the Family Room, exclusive to Superliner trains, can accommodate up to four people and comes with full-sized beds, additional storage, and a private lavatory. Reserve the entire room when booking, especially if you're traveling with a companion.

Your journey starts at Penn Station's newest addition - Moynihan Train Hall. Located adjacent to Penn Station, the 350,000-square-foot facility is designed to offer travelers a modern and comfortable place to wait for or transfer between Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road departures. This new facility replaces the original James A. Farley Post Office Building and features 30 different retail shops, as well as a 15,000-square-foot public square that provides access to both Penn Station and the subway line 7.

The journey concludes at Denver Union Station, a fully accessible hub at 1701 Wynkoop Street. It features a ticket sales office, restrooms, and baggage storage facilities. While the station does not have parking, it is served by several public transportation options, including RTD's light rail system, the University of Colorado A Line connecting to Denver International Airport, multiple bus lines, including the Free MallRide, and the B-Cycle bike share system.

In Denver, enjoy outdoor activities at the picturesque Rocky Mountain National Park, visit Denver Art Museum and check out Native and Western American Art, or the Denver Botanic Gardens and take a break from the desert.
