Pass cranberry bogs, lush marshes and hidden parts of the Cape aboard the two-hour “Scenic Fun Train” (tickets sold the day of the ride only). Departures from Hyannis, Sandwich and West Barnstable available. Prices from Hyannis are $21 per adult, $17 per child age 3 to 11. Children under 3 ride free.
Or take the Family Supper Train, a favorite of young kids because Choo Choo Charley and friends put on a magic show before boarding then amuse with balloon twisting and face painting once onboard. Kids get to dine on fun food, while parents dine on more upscale fare like Pan Seared Salmon and Chicken Francaise (offered June through August and by reservation only, adults $42.95 per person, children under 12 $29.95 per person, under age one is free). Trains run Memorial Day Weekend thru October plus other holiday runs during the Halloween and Christmas seasons.
