The Scenic Train Ride In Wisconsin That Runs Year-Round

If you want to experience some beautiful Wisconsin scenery, there are plenty of railways that have your ticket. Elkhorn, Green Bay, and Spooner are just a few of the towns that offer scenic train rides.

However, when the snow flies, your train ride options become a little limited, as these attractions close for the season. There’s still one train that runs, no matter the season or month, and it’s a ride you might not have considered. All aboard Amtrak’s Empire Builder! This iconic long-haul train route runs through the state and takes passengers through the unique and beautiful landscape of western Wisconsin. Here’s how to experience a special journey, with a scenic ride from Tomah to La Crosse.


The Empire Builder runs twice per day between the cities. You can purchase Amtrak tickets several ways, online, over the phone via an app or travel agent.
