Chugga, Chugga….nope, not beer! Choo, Choo...trains! The transportation mode that started in 1825 (for passenger transportation anyway) has some great new, modern options. These train adventures will have you reconsidering your next vacation. Trains seem to be making a comeback in a big way these days. Check out some of the options below that we are seriously considering for our next getaway!
Jose Cuervo Express - this train travels from Guadalajara, Mexico to Tequila, Mexico and back. All the while riding in luxury accommodations and filing your belly with delicious tequila. This 11-hour adventure runs every Saturday and you get a tour of the oldest distillery in Latin America. Blue agave fields, constant tequila drinking, and a luxury train ride...I say 'yes'!
Wine and a murder mystery: girl's trip anyone? The Napa Valley Wine Train is starting a speakeasy-themed murder mystery on April 13th. If you ever wanted to experience an Agatha Christie novel, now is your chance. The bonus of this experience is the amazing wine you will get to enjoy. This three-hour tour is on a historic train, offers gourmet dinner, and includes you in solving a 1920's murder. As if we needed more reasons to go to Napa!
Don't want to leave Colorado? Not to worry, there are a lot of local options for a breathtaking scenic ride through the many wonders Colorado has to offer. The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is certainly a favorite. This year-round, coal-fired, steam-powered train has been in operation since 1882. They offer a variety of events including a Mother's Day ride, a Brews Train, a Polar Express experience, to name a few. Keep it local and drive south, taking in some of the most beautiful views you will find anywhere in the world!
