 The Polar Express Train Adventure

All aboard... for an enchanted Christmas family adventure on a Polar Express Train Ride, departing from a train station near you.  Bring to life the children's classic, "The Polar Express"  by Chris Van Allsburg.

Santa visiting with children on the Grand Canyon Railway.

Imagine rumbling down the train track to the North Pole, your young ones wearing their PJ's, wide-eyed and full of anticipation to where this magical journey will take them. Take in the scenic countryside lit with festive Christmas lights, sip hot chocolate and snack on yummy treats served up by Santa's elves, read from the classic story, sing favorite Christmas carols, and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. A special sleigh bell gift will add to the memory of this adventure -- a family tradition, celebrated for years to come.

Traveling with our Children

"I’ve been traveling with my son since he was 13 weeks old and I love it!  Actually, I discovered that traveling with my child was easy for I was already committed to including him.  I find it a challenge to plan ahead and anticipate his needs... and well rewarded with fun, family adventures." -- Publisher/Editor Deb Cornick 

    So, what do we parents who travel with our children know that others don’t?
