This ingenious travel agenda isn’t offered by any specific company, but instead comes from the planning savvy of travel expert and blogger Derek Low. He has managed to chart a course that covers 3,400 scenic miles from San Francisco to New York. On your way, you’ll pass through cities like Salt Lake City, Denver and Chicago, giving you the opportunity to witness sights like the Rockies, the Sierra Nevada mountains and much more.

To travel so far and witness so many of our country’s amazing sights, it will cost you a mere $213. Wowza!

Derek not only breaks down the deets on how to snag this incredible travel deal, but he also provides tips to perfect your trip such as grabbing a spot in a “Sightseer Lounge car,” which features floor-to-ceiling windows and window-facing seats AND narration from historians and park rangers, so you can learn all of the super cool facts about the areas you pass.

If you’re not up for planning your travels yourself (or just want to take advantage of an experienced traveler’s know-how), Derek is now offering train travel planning services for $49. Add that to the $213 train trip and it’s still a whopper of a deal.

Bon voyage!
