All aboard the Polar Express! The Texas State Railroad is offering a magical holiday trip on its historic train from Nov. 16-Dec. 28. After boarding, enjoy hot chocolate and served by festive chefs reciting from the children’s book with the soundtrack of the movie playing in the background. When you reach the North Pole, Santa and his elves tag along for the ride, handing out sleigh bells to everyone who believes in the spirit of Christmas. The hour-long trip is the perfect length for young children or guests of any age, and it’s even more enjoyable in pajamas!
