You can travel from coast to coast by train for as low as $300, according to a budget plan devised by a travel blogger named Derek Low.
Low laid out a pocket-friendly travel adventure with a 3,397-mile train adventure lasting for four days. Although it doesn’t have any stopovers, you still would be able to get a glimpse of the beautiful landmarks of the United States. “The U.S. still has an excellent rail network for visitors that’ll take you to almost all the towns and cities a visitor would want to see,” said Low.
Going into full detail, Low explained that the journey will start from San Francisco and will end in New York. Throughout the trip, you will be able to pass through 11 states.
Low’s budget plan will cover only regular coach setting. For your meals, the onboard café of the train will be very convenient for you.
Beginning the journey in San Francisco en route to Chicago, California Zephyr tickets will cost you about $137.
Also, you would get the chance to glance at stellar views like Lake Michigan and the Finger Lakes region in upstate New York.
The four-day trip will end at Penn Station, which is right at the heart of Manhattan.
All in all, your once-in-a-lifetime adventure will cost you less than $300.
