The scenic and affordable 3,400-mile itinerary begins in San Francisco and journeys through the snowy Sierra Nevadas and Rockies before it ends in New York. In addition to the breathtaking sights, the trip also includes commentary from history experts.

If you'd like a break from the non-stop 4-day journey, you make stops in the cities along the way but that entails buying separate tickets for each leg according to Derek.

If you'd like to see the best of what this great nation as to offer, there is no other trip as enriching as the one aboard the California Zephyr and Lake Shore Limited. Derek said it best: "The experience rewards you with far more stories and experiences and sights than you could ever witness alone in a car, eyes fixed on the road, or on a five-hour flight across the country."

Due to popular demand, Derek is now offering planning services to help others recreate a similar trip. He promises to "arrange your entire trip and book all your tickets for a small service fee of $49."

He's already taking in requests for summer travel so if you're interested, don't hesitate to submit your booking request here.
