I was with my teenage son, he loves train rides, we did 3 others in the area, this was our least favorite, not much to see or do, they do entertain the younger kids though!

We signed up for a train ride and we got a train ride. It was a nice, relaxing ride - nothing too exciting. We did this on the last day of our trip after strenuous hikes and other activities and it was just what we...More
