This Guy Saw The US For Under $500, His Photos Will Make You Rethink Your Vacation Plans.

This is Low's route across America, stretched out over 15 days. If he did the trip with no stops, it would take about 4 days.

Have you ever traveled across the country? Most specifically, have you ever traveled across the country for under $500?

It seems totally impossible, but one young traveler figured out the secret. Derek Low took a journey around the United States for 15 days, using only Amtrak to get around. Though trains take much longer than planes, the fares are considerably cheaper - not to mention more scenic. They're the perfect alternative for young travelers on a budget, and Low's photos from his trip are simply spectacular.
