Polar Express train Ride In Utah

November 17, 2019

What other Christmas train rides can I take in Utah?

Utah is a state that’s truly unique, making it a fascinating wintertime vacation destination. The Beehive State is among the largest states in the nation, and its landscape includes all sorts of wonders. It features desert, wetlands, forests, and more. Many parts of the state see less than 12 inches of precipitation each year, but it also can receive an impressive amount of snow in places like Salt Lake City. While you may not spot snow on every North Pole train in Utah, there are many places offering wintertime rides that will dazzle you. Amtrak Railroad is always a popular attraction, and the Utah Transit Authority offers interurban rail rides that are super practical. However, the Heber Valley Railroad is a fan favorite for holiday-specific fun!

What are the best holiday events in Utah for families?

If any state knows how to throw a family-friendly good time, it’s The Beehive State!  In addition to taking a Christmas train ride in Utah, you can enjoy the season from the comfort of your car at the Christmas in Color drive-through display.
