It’s a new year, and the season for accomplishing those resolutions is here. For so many people, resolving to travel more is at the top of their list — but is there a way to do that without breaking the bank? Welp, turns out there is, thanks to a shockingly affordable cross-country train ride that that won’t put you over your budget.

Derek Low, a noted travel blogger and travel expert, created this train route to efficiently save money and bring you amazing sights, all between San Francisco and New York. You can ride either the California Zephyr or the Lake Shore Limited to partake in this adventure.

The best part?

A round trip will only cost you a whopping $213 — that is quite a steal to see some of the most beautiful cities in America, like Salt Lake City, Denver, and Chicago.

This route also has an extended trip offer ($429 for a 15-day extended rail), giving you more time to sight-see in each new city.

So consider taking this route on your first trip of the new year — your wallet and your new sense of wanderlust will thank you.
