This Dreamy Train-Themed Trip Through Washington Will Take You On The Journey Of A Lifetime
The railroad industry plays an important role in Washington’s history, so if you’re a train-loving Washingtonian, you’re not alone. And this train-themed road trip is for you. All aboard! (Sorry, we couldn’t resist).
Set your alarm, because this road trip starts early in the morning at Frank's Diner in Spokane.
Since 1931, Frank's Diner has been serving hearty breakfasts from a 1906 railroad car. It's the perfect place to begin the trip.
Once you're full of delicious diner food, you've got a bit of a drive... the next stop is the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie.
The Northwest Railway Museum includes the 1890 Snoqualmie Depot on King Street and the Railway History Center on Stone Quarry Road, and it's a great place to learn about our local railroad history.
Next, cruise over to the tiny town of Elbe and enjoy a meal at Mount Rainier Railroad Dining.
And if it's open, you'll definitely want to make a stop at the nearby Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum.
If you've had enough driving for the day, you can end your trip in Elbe and sleep in a caboose at the charming Hobo Inn...
... but we highly recommend driving over to Sequim and spending the night at the Red Caboose Getaway B&B.
This B&B is a collection of cabooses with all the comforts of a luxury hotel room.
The next morning, enjoy a gourmet breakfast in the dining car before heading on your way.
Planning a themed road trip is such a fun way to explore Washington. Check out this
