Figuring out which segments  to upgrade to sleeper car on my epic Amtrak adventure hasn’t been particularly complicated – I am looking for the best bang for my dollar! I am also aware of my need to sleep and rest well!

so which are the segments that I am looking at upgrading to sleeper car?

Departure                                      Arrival

El Paso, Texas New Orleans
Atlanta, Georgia Washington DC
Boston Chicago
Chicago Minot, ND
Minot, ND Portland, Oregon

I am still waiting to hear back on exact cost to upgrade each of these!

Why a Sleeper Car Upgrade?

One of the other reasons why I am looking at a sleeper car upgrade for the overnight routes are the perks! Sleeping car passengers are entitled to a range of hotel-like amenities, including fresh linen and towel service and complimentary bottled water. Sleeper Service passengers also enjoy access during your voyage to ClubAcela and Amtrak Metropolitan Lounges located at select stations.

This is a working trip for me, so access to comfortable work accommodations are essential!

The American Identity Tour is a crazy adventure marked with photos and word and inspired by the incredible women in Anna’s family, especially her late grandmother, whom she knew as Nan-Nan. Anna is currently finishing her book, “Not a Pedestrian Life.”
