4. Cross-country Train Ride

If you want to see the countryside and explore new horizons, but don’t want to cram yourself and all of your luggage into a car with your friends and family, a cross-country train ride may be the way to go!

Personally, I’ve always dreamed of taking a train ride from my home state of California to New York during the summer of my senior year. If you have a similar fantasy, you should turn your dreams into reality! Long train rides slow life down considerably, and allow you to make the most of the travel portion of your senior trip. While road trips place the emphasis on pit stops along the way, a cross-country train ride in itself is a wonderful experience!
