For the train enthusiast, NorthShore Scenic Railroad can be a great experience. Come see how history comes to life as several trains depart on a daily basis taking you on a trip from the Duluth Union Depot through Canal Park and along Lake Superior’s shore. Travel deep into the north woods and with fully narrated tours you can learn about the history of Duluth as well as the many stories of the railroad.
If you are looking for something the entire family can enjoy, this is a great choice as there is a Day Out with Thomas which is great for the little ones. Take a ride in their favorite train engine and even meet Sir Tophamm Hatt. Children love trains and this can be a great way to take the family for a fun afternoon day.
Some of the daily excursions include trips through downtown, along the shore lines, exploring Two Harbors, and more. There are many that last an hour while some last an entire day with stops along the way with shopping and food. Times and ticket prices vary so it’s best to research the excursion you are interested in.
If you are having a family get together there are opportunities to book group excursions. This is a great way to spend time with the entire family or even with friends. If you have school field trips, you can make any event one to remember. You’ll need to get in touch with the Railroad to get pricing and other detailed information to book your event.
Special events are offered all year long and while some require reservations, others don’t. Keep in mind though that all reservations are non-refundable so make sure you want the reservation. If you need to cancel, you will get a certificate to use at a later time with the Railroad. This can be a great birthday party idea as well as a way to spend a honeymoon or a date weekend with your partner.
The NorthShore Railroad offers a lot of options for the train enthusiast and a great way to explore something out of the ordinary. You can put a twist on family functions or other events with a train excursion.
