Top Ten Off-the-Rails Adventure

  |  Gorp.com

Ever dream of driving across the country?

While it sounds like an exciting rite of passage, the long hours on the road can be draining and tedious. Traveling by train is one alternative way to get from A to B: enjoy the scenery along the way, leave your enraged Monday-morning nemesis stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, read a book, or simply dream about what you'll do when you arrive.

Whether it's skiing Lake Tahoe's world-class powder, mountain biking in the desert at Moab, or kayaking around the Statue of Liberty, GORP brings you ten things to do if you're traversing the land on the back of the country's rail network.
