Take a Ride on a Magic Train



I love seeing Upstate New York activities talked about in the Sunday edition of the New York Times.

In the Travel Section, page 3, you’ll notice a calendar of activities sure to please the discerning traveler. The list includes a rendezvous with french Creole cuisine in New Orleans followed by an annual tour of historic homes in Philadelphia and, saving the best for last, the Polar Express Train Ride from Saratoga Springs to North Creek or rather the imaginary North Pole.

Speaking of which, I’ve got an assignment aboard the Polar Express later on this week. Children need not dress up for the occasion – just like the movie, simply toss on some pajamas and slippers and get your golden ticket hole punched.

“Guests enjoy travel on a festively decorated vintage train, sip hot chocolate, read along with the illustrated story and sing Christmas songs.”

The train operates twice daily through December 29. Buy your tickets online at https://www.sncrr.com/the-polar-express.html
