What a nice train ride and especially in the fall! We took the longer trip and enjoyed the brisk weather and the fall foliage.

I took my grandson through this museum. He is 8 and really enjoyed it. The volunteer were very knowledgeable and even let him run a train around the track.

Family of four(7,11) had a very fun and relaxing time. On time and was the perfect distance. They do offer a evening diner ride, but we went to the daytime ride. Lots of views and even got pictures of Mt. Ranier in background
