Essex Steam Train & Riverboat Ride

Thursday, July 27, 2017

$98/ per person
(Includes round trip transportation, train ride, boat cruise & lunch)

We head to the mouth of New England's Largest River - The Connecticut. Here we'll board the only steam train & riverboat connection in the United states. Board the Essex Steam Train at the 1892 Essex Station for a 12-mile narrated round trip into the heart of the unspoiled Connecticut River Valley- designated by the Nature Conservancy as "one of the last great places on earth." The train ride includes lunch on board. On arrival at Deep River, you'll board the riverboat Becky Thatcher for a cruise along the Connecticut River - exploring the coves, inlets, marshes, wildlife and rocky shoreline - and viewing historic sites, including the Gillette Castle, Goodspeed Opera House and the Haddam Swing Bridge.
