Trains Aren't A Lost Art In San Francisco
Trains aren't a lost art in San Francisco
One of the greatest things about visiting San Francisco is the close proximity to nearby attractions. You can advance in one city while visiting several. You can not only get the conveniences of considering in the city, but the beauty of nature is not too far away from almost any point within the city. In fact, a short train ride will take you rather briskly to some nearby attractions that are definitely worth checking into.
One of the first train tours I'll mention isn't only a train tour but a bus and train tour. This tour goes from San Francisco to Yosemite Park. This trip requires transfers back and forth from bus to train but offers some beautiful scenery and the ability to appreciate live without the worry of driving, rest stops, and a need to simply stretch your legs. Sometimes a little inconvenience is worth a lot more convenience later in your trip. The train portion of the tour lasts about three hours and you get to spend three hours in Yosemite. For some it isn't godsend the hassle and for others it is just what the doctor ordered - time to rest and relax while on the journey. This is by far the most complicated of the train tours heading out from San Francisco, at least the tours I will sell for discussing.
The second travel is to wine country. The beauty of these tours is the fact that you can enjoy your wine tasting experience forfeit the worry of who's going to drive. Everyone in your party can be entertained the outing equally. Even more than that however, is that many companies have made the train ride itself more the event than the wine tasting. With offerings such as 4 course meals and Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre for your sensation it is no wonder that this has become an event of souped up for many San Francisco visitors. While this may be a more than moderately pricey option, it is well worth the monetary worth. You can always cut costs elsewhere in San Francisco to make up for the expenditure.
Roaring Camp Railroads offers two train rides that are both equally appealing in vastly different ways. The first is a trip back in time. This is probably my favorite. On this trip you travel to the summit of Bear Mountain while hearing tales of Roaring Camp's history. This train tour lasts a damage of one hour and is a great deal of fun, especially for fraction little ones you may have with you. The second allowance by Roaring Camp Railroads is the Beach Train, which will part you to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The round trip from Strong Loony to Santa Cruz and back is about three hours and well worth every penny if you posses a budding or future engineer among your young ones.
Perhaps the markedly magical of train tours is the Christmas Train Tour from Oakdale. This probe includes Santa, his elves, a little Christmas magic, and you encumbrance come in your jimmies. What more could you ask for? Well, I mind that depends on whether you made the naughty inventory or the approved list. This train ride is necromancy for everyone that partakes, young and old alike will enjoy the magic that only Christmas can dispatch.
Whether you are a big kid, a little kid, or somewhere in between, I'm willing to bet that the magic of a train ride hasn't been completely lost over the years. In reality, I'm willing to bet if you allow yourself to really sit back and enjoy yourself, you will find that there really is something to be said about sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying the journey. I can think of few better ways to enjoy the voyage as much as the destination.
