Train Lovers Won’t Want To Pass Up A Visit To These Historic Locomotives
Unlike much of the American mainland, the Hawaiian Islands might not be known for their epic train travel, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have railroad history of our own. In fact, we still have a few places where you can experience this history first hand, from a historic train on Oahu’s southwest coast and the Kauai Plantation Railroad to this one-of-a-kind destination on the island of Maui that’s full of history. All aboard!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
