Also, traveler’s pro-tip: If you feel like upgrading to Business Class on the Lake Shore Limited, you’ll have access to a bunch of goodies, such as “seating in a dedicated car, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and access to the Amtrak Metropolitan Lounge in Chicago.”
Alas, you don’t necessarily have to follow in Low’s tracks, as you can travel ANYWHERE on Amtrak with the 15-day pass. Suddenly, exploring that great swath of land around the Grand Canyon doesn't sound so daunting. If all of this sounds like the ideal off-kilter travel package, there’s an even better reason to gush: Low will book your trip for you for the cool price of $49, to save you the headache.
