This Historic Train Ride Through South Dakota Will Take You Back In Time

All aboard! It’s time to get on the historic 1880 Train in the Black Hills of South Dakota and experience the travel of the past. The original steam train will take you through the gorgeous, scenic landscapes in between stations. Along the way, you will not only be able to see the beautiful sights, but learn a lot, too.

To get the true experience, you need to take the trip yourself, but here’s a bit of a preview of the ride:

For more information, reservations, and a train schedule, visit the 1880 Train site. Be ready to visit again in December, when it transforms into the Holiday Express.

The 1880 Town in South Dakota has a train car that has been transformed into a diner. It’s a must-visit, too. Their food is great, and the fact that you get to eat it in an old train car is even more awesome!
