All Aboard!

Rail & Sail Foliage Tour

October 18, 2024

It’s a well-known fact that New England has the most magnificent fall foliage in the country! Celebrate autumn with PRIME TIME™ on Friday, October 18th as we embark on a Rail & Sail Foliage Tour in search of the most stunning colors of the season! This year’s journey takes us through the lower Connecticut River Valley.

Step back in time at the historic 1892 Essex Station as we climb aboard a restored 1920’s Pullman dining car for an elegant 3-course meal. Relax and let the rhythm of the rails transport you back to the days when rail travel was king and “dinner in the diner was a special occasion. Entrée choices are:

_____   Braised Beef with carrots, celery and red wine

_____   Mushroom Asiago Chicken with fresh herbs

_____   Baked Ziti with whipped ricotta and fresh mozzarella

Following our nostalgic train ride and luncheon, the journey continues as we board the Becky Thatcher for a foliage voyage on the Connecticut River. Not only will we witness the vibrant colors of fall, we’ll also pass by historic sites including Gillette Castle, Goodspeed Opera House and the Haddam Swing Bridge.

Pull out your fall sweaters and see why New England is known for its vibrant foliage, drawing leaf-peepers every year!
