What fun! What could be more memorable than a BBQ (and possibly brews) scenic train ride that includes a sunset over the lake from atop a trestle?!

The sunset BBQ dinner trains aboard the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad are only available on select dates (and sunset views are weather permitting and not guaranteed). Further, there are family-friendly options as well as an adults-only version that costs a little more, and features locally crafted beer in addition to the tangy BBQ. Also, dates featuring either a diesel or steam locomotive are available. Prices for the excursions vary according to your preferences from the above options. Each ride comes with a souvenir glass (adult and beer tickets) or a stadium cup (kids’ tickets). More information on the BBQ trains is available at this link on their website.

The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is located at 45 Mitchell St., Bryson City, NC 28713. More information can be found on their official website and on their Facebook page.
