Christmas Tree Adventures in the Cleveland/Akron Area

Ride theCuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad to get your Christmas Tree thid year!

Ride the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Saturdays and Sundays November 28 through December 13th and travel to Heritage Farms in Peninsula, Ohio to cut down your very own Scotch Pine, White Pine or Blue Spruce Christmas Tree.  During your stay at Heritage Farm you can enjoy a cup of hot cocoa while watching your tree being bundled and taken back to the train for you.  Rides are $28 for adults and $14 for children 3-12.  The train departs from Rockside Road Station at 10 a.m. and Akron Northside Station 11:35 a.m. I recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time here, or register by calling 1-800-468-4070.

    This seems like something out of a storybook version of the Polar Express. How intriguing.
