The Scenic train rides has a little something for families, adults and kids

After battling the annual untangling of the Christmas lights, and a torturing day of Black Friday, you may want to celebrate the first weekend of the holiday season doing something other than trolling around looking at Christmas decorations.

Check out the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.

The Christmas Tree Adventure is a three-plus hour excursion that takes place on Sunday and boards at either CVSR’s Rockside or Akron Northside station. It stops in Peninsula. Once there, a bus will be waiting to shuttle visitors to Heritage Farms. Families can then wander around and choose from a variety of tree types. According to its website, Heritage Farms has Fraser fir, Black Hills spruce, White and Scotch pine and blue spruce. Afterward, the trees are bundled and loaded onto the train to take home.

Remember to bring something to secure the tree to your vehicle once back at the station.

The stations and departure times are as follows: 9 a.m. at the Rockside station, 7900 Old Rockside Road., Independence; 10:55 a.m. out of the Akron Northside station, 27 Ridge St. The cost is $21 for adults and $16 for children; ages 2 and younger don’t need a ticket, but must sit on a parent’s lap.
