For two weeks, you're living in a centuries-old farmhouse in an olive grove. You can walk to town for fresh meat and produce and cook them at home, or you can hop in your car and drive through rugged, wildflower-covered hillsides to larger towns in a matter of hours.
You know the drill by now: Amtrak has semi-secret discount codes that shave money off fares, so there's really no reason to pay full price for your rail journey. Between the fire-sale fares and discount codes, you'll find cheap rides from sea to shining sea.
