Quirky Story Train Rides & More Summer Trip Ideas

Quirky Story Train Rides & More Summer Trip Ideas

You’re all moved into your new house, thanks to the expert moving company in Melbourne, FL, but there’s still time to take the kids on a vacation before school resumes, so you may be considering what destination you and your family will enjoy.

If you’re tired of the amusement parks in Orlando, consider a creative twist on a train ride through the Great Smoky Mountains, called the “Wizard of Oz Train Ride”. Travel through Munchkin land, the yellow brick road, and the Emerald City with Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion, and watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West! This iconic train ride is sure to be a hit with your kids, and they will particularly enjoy the beloved film’s story retelling. The characters in the book and film bring the classic story to life, and there will be refreshments and a live stage show during the 2 ½-hour ride.

There are a few seasonal stories later this fall and winter that will be featured on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, as well, including a Halloween-themed one called “Peanuts Pumpkin Patch Express” and the “Polar Express Train Ride”.

If these creative train rides aren’t interesting to your family, consider additional, offbeat ways to have fun together before summer comes to an end. Take a road trip throughout Florida or an area of the country you’ve always wanted to explore, take a destination cruise to a new continent or island you’ve never visited, or go on an African safari. Depending on the age of your children and the sizes of your budget and family, you may choose to stay closer to home or fly 20 hours away. Kids usually need lots of activities to stay entertained, so consider vacation trips that provide plenty of amusement options (zip lining, parasailing, hiking, “treasure hunting,” fishing, jet skiing, etc.).
