Adventure tourists, known for their try-anything attitudes, have been documented taking tours of volcano interiors, remote jungles, and scissor factories operated by teams of blindfolded joggers. Fulfill wanderlust safely with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two Islander Touring Train tickets from the Newport Dinner Train, leaving from Newport Train Station (up to a $29.90 value).

Now beginning its 15th season riding the rails, the company’s Islander Touring Train whisks riders away on a 90-minute excursion through the lush lands and rich history of Aquidneck Island. Normally brooding and inscrutable, the gorgeous vistas, ocean scenes, and man-made landmarks along the route are contextualized by informed narration that elucidates their past colonial lives. Aspiring politicians can conduct whistle-stop tours through Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth, or take inspiration from the local naval base and Weaver Cove, where a young JFK trained on PT boats and perfected pithy jelly-donut-based aphorisms. Snacks and beverages are available on board.

The Islander Touring Train leaves at 11:30 a.m. Thursdays (June–August) and Saturdays (May–September).

Tickets for children under 12 are already about half the price of an adult ticket. To get the best value from this Groupon, use it for two adult tickets.

Newport Dinner Train

Now in its 16th season riding the rails, the Newport Dinner Train whisks up to 200 passengers through the lush lands and rich history of Aquidneck Island. A 44-ton diesel engine powers the locomotive, which pulls vintage 1940s dining cars, similar to the ones grandparents had to haul barefoot through the snow on their way to school each morning.
