Price Not Available

Board a vintage 1900s Pullman train for captivating views of 1500-year-old, 250-foot-tall redwoods and the lively Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Explore outdoor boutiques and take in scenic ocean views before returning to the captain’s entertaining narration of California's history, landmarks, and other fun details.

Relive a piece of California’s history at the town of Roaring Camp—a re-creation of an 1880s logging town. This Wild West town offers a general store, logging camp, steam sawmill, and authentically dressed vendors. Enjoy a historic reenactment that brings the park's great treasure to life at the next door Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park.

Soak in the sun on the open-air train down the Pacific Railway—opened in 1875 and one of the oldest lines in California—which offers a relaxing backdrop with rich sense of antiquity. Travel down the San Lorenzo River Gorge on the slowly moving train as you admire panoramic views full of endless photos opportunities.

Once you arrive at the Santa Cruz Beach, have a picnic on the beach, discover the wide variety of shops, or hang out with the sun-basking sea lions under the pier. Spend the afternoon exploring all that the boardwalk has to offer, and then board the bench-lined cars for your ride back to the redwoods.
