Kickstart your cross-country journey in San Francisco, where you will witness the breathtaking coastal views of the San Francisco Bay and travel through cities like Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago and New York. Along the way you will see the Sierra Nevada mountains, witness beautiful desert sunsets, see the Great Plains in Colarado and Kansas and travel along the upper Hudson River. 

Enjoy the best views from the 'Sightseer Lounge Cars', which feature floor-to-ceiling windows and comfortable chairs. The journey also feautres a narration from historians and park rangers along the way, so you can learn about the areas you are passing. 

If you want to extend your trip and pay a bit more ($429 for a 15-day rail pass, as Derek did) you can stop off at some of the citites that you pass along the way.  

You can see Derek's entire journey and his travel tips on his website, and even have him book it for you, for the cool price of $49.

Welcome to your happy place. #Amtrak : @yo_scoot
