Get Your Christmas Tree With CVSR
The holidays will soon be upon us, bringing Thanksgiving turkey’s and Christmas cheer. Are you ready for the hustle and bustle?
This year take a family adventure to get your Christmas tree aboard Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad! With our Christmas Tree Adventure excursion we’ll take you out to Heritage Farms in Peninsula to pick out your perfect tree. Climb aboard the train for a ride to our Peninsula Depot, where you will deboard and take a bus to Heritage Tree Farm. At the farm, you can leisurely take your time picking out a perfect tree. After your purchase, the bus will take you back to Peninsula Depot where you’ll board the train again and head back to your station of origin.
And the trees? They’ll be tagged and loaded into our baggage car and then safety transported on the train back to the station. If you found your ideal tree quickly, the bus will return you to the Village of Peninsula for a little early holiday shopping at one of the unique shops around town!
This year, make picking out a Christmas tree fun for the whole family aboard the train!
