One of the best ways to experience Lake Superior is by riding the North Shore Scenic Railroad. From Duluth to Two Harbors the railroad rides the rails along Lake Superior for 28 miles and it is some of the most beautiful scenery you may ever see! During May through October you can choose from a variety of train experiences. For an additional cost you can tour the extensive Railroad Museum at The Depot. You could spend the whole day riding and learning about trains!
Most of the train rides are short rides but you can reserve a 30 mile excursion to Two Harbors, Minnesota which takes a full day on the weekend. The ride includes touring, lunch and a great train experience in a historic train car. Another option is a ride on the Duluth Zephyr which now offers a first class option. If the kids are along maybe the pizza or music train will be the train ride you will enjoy!
The North Shore Scenic Railroad offers special excursions during the year such as a fine dining dinner train, murder mystery train, summer barbeque train for Father’s Day, a day out with Thomas the Train for kids, a beer tasting train, a Mother’s Day train ride, a Grandma’s Marathon viewing ride and more. You may be interested in chartering a train car for a birthday party, business outing or group event. Check out the website for the latest offerings, pricing and the full schedule of departures.
Make the North Shore Scenic Railroad a part of your next visit to Duluth Minnesota!
