All Aboard! The Best Christmas Train Rides in America

Get into the holiday spirit with a ride on one of the country’s most festive trains.

At Christmastime, we often get caught up in the holiday rush. Many of us are dashing through the snow to pick out the perfect presents, find the best holiday decorations, or shop for the big feast. Some of us are going over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house. And many of us are even journeying across the country to see family and friends. The holidays can become overwhelming, with all the whimsy and wonderment lost in the hustle and bustle of the season. Luckily, the magic of Christmas is just a train ride away!
