If the kiddies, and grandma have been good all year (okay, most of the year)… add a little magic to the season and bring them to Virginia City to ride the V&T Candy Cane Express. Steeped in holiday spirit, this whimsical train has become a cherished local tradition for families of all ages.
On the scenic 45-minute journey over the original 150-year old V&T railroad route, you will enjoy hot cocoa or cider, candy canes & cookies, on the festively decorated train. Watch little faces light up while riding through the enchanting Candy Cane tunnel. Listen to a reading of the 1823 classic “T’was the Night Before Christmas”, and you may even see wild horses along the way! Whether the V&T Candy Cane Express is a new experience or one you’ve cherished over the years, it’s a magical event you and your family will never forget.
