Essex Rail & Sail

Tuesday, August 25


Travel on a vintage 1920s coach pulled by an authentic steam locomotive through the Connecticut countryside.  Our conductor will explain the history of rail travel and point out local points of interest along the 12-mile, narrated round-trip train ride into the heart of the unspoiled Connecticut River Valley. The picturesque countryside includes pristine meadows, a mill pond with waterfall, trestles and bridges over rivers and creeks. While on board our rail excursion, we will be treated to a delicious full lunch.  Then, we’ll board the Becky Thatcher, for a one-hour Riverboat cruise along the majestic Connecticut River. Along the way, we’ll see Gillette Castle, Goodspeed Opera House, and the Haddam Swing Bridge. End the day exploring the quaint seaside village of Essex to shop the boutiques or relax on the waterfront.
