In the last few weeks, I've spoken with some people that have gone on the Steamtrain and Riverboat Ride in Essex, CT. The steamtrain is from yesteryear, and brings one back to the old days. The Valley Railroad has been since 1869.. can you think of a better way to cool off in the summer than in an open car?
There is even Thomas the Train there too, where you can meet Sir Topham Hatt.
There is even a riverboat (Mississippi style) called the Becky Thatcher for those who wish to go out on the Connecticut River.
Want to spend the day with the family and take in the old trains, and be on a riverboat... I can't think of a better place.
