amtrakpicSpring Break is just around the corner. If you've ever wanted to travel across country but didn't have the funds to do it, we've got a solution for you.

This Amtrak train will take you to some of the most beautiful cities in America like Salt Lake City, Denver and Chicago—and it only costs $213.

To make it even easier, travel blogger Derek Low mapped out the route to take so you can travel to various cities between San Francisco and New York. You can ride either the California Zephyr or the Lake Shore Limited.There’s even an extended trip package, giving you 15 extra days to explore the country and sight-see for an additional $216.

We know what you’re thinking, “I’m a student. This is still too expensive.” Amtrak hears you. UCLA students are eligible for a 15% discount on Flexible and Value cross-country rail fares year-round.

Not looking to go so far? Amtrak’s Throughway Service offers UCLA students a 20% discount on in-state travel. A short bus ride will take you from 592 Gayley Avenue at Strathmore Place to the Van Nuys and Bakersfield stations. From these locations the San Joaquin and Pacific Surfliner trains can take you as far north as Sacramento and anywhere in between.
