Cape Cod Central Railroad
One of the most romantic hallmarks of America's history—riding the rails past a pristine landscape—is very much alive on the Cape Cod Central Railroad. Towed by one of a fleet of engines that includes one originally built in 1951 for the Santa Fe Railway, the train rumbles past views of the region's woodlands, sand dunes, and cranberry and salt bogs. Throughout the course of the gently rocking ride, entertaining on-board narrators provide insight into the history and ecology of a region that allowed glacial bedrock to form into railroads over millions of years. Along with the casual two-hour sightseeing trips, the railroad offers several vintage dining trips, including a candlelit evening foray that features a gourmet five-course meal set to romantic background music.
