Where Kids can Find Their Favorite Christmas Train Express
There is something magical about trains at Christmas time. Whether it is the site of train tracks wrapped underneath a family’s Christmas tree or watching a holiday favorite like The Polar Express, trains are a holiday tradition for many.
Last night my son set up his electric train in the living room and I could just see it running under our Christmas tree when we set it up. Christmas trees + trains = magic.
While Christmas trains are a rare occurrence this season, there are still some happening! We will update this as we learn of new displays and rides, and look forward to the return of many Christmas trains near Grand Rapids next year.
