The Magical Polar Express Train Ride In North Carolina Everyone Should Experience At Least Once

When I was little, on Christmas Eve my mom would read The Polar Express to me. I remember being so enchanted, and also wishing I could have my very own chance to slip away on a snowy Christmas Eve and take an adventure to the North Pole. Reading the book is a beloved tradition for many families. But you can actually bring the magic to life with your children and grandchildren on the Polar Express Train Ride hosted by Great Smoky Mountains Railroad.

UNC-TV made this great video about the Polar Express Train Ride if you want to see what it’s like to hop on board.

I’d suggest getting your tickets ASAP as popular days tend to sell out. Have you experienced this before or plan to this year?
