City of New Orleans
Ah, the City of New Orleans.
Every Amtrak trip I have ever been on has started with this route, whether it is going south to the Big Easy, or north to the Windy City. In fact, I have ridden this one so many times, going all the way back to my kindergarden days, I have lost count.
Traveling from Jackson to Chicago, we will be passing through Memphis TN, Fulton KY, Champaign IL, and more.
Length of route (Jackson to Chicago): 751 miles
