Aug 17, 2007
Sacramento is a beautiful city located in a leafy valley of scenic rivers and canopies of trees. The city is referred to as the snapshot of Wild West history in a modern world-class city. It has plenty of great attractions and events, and all-year-round recreational activities. What is more, the city also offers incredible shopping opportunities, hotels and restaurants, nightlife entertainment, and above all, superb and exciting tours. So, if you are planning a vacation trip to this exotic and vibrant place, what more can you ask for?

If you can take a ride on the Sacramento River Train, and travel eastward from Woodland to the Sacramento River, and then go on to West Sacramento, then you will pass through the rich agricultural land of Yolo County. Along the way you traverse across an 8,000-foot long wooden trestle, journey through the numerous orchards and the local crops. You can also sample and buy the region produce when the train makes a halt at Uncle Ray Fruit Stand. This entire train journey takes around two and a half hours. Apart from this, you can enjoy various other train excursions offered by the Sacramento River Train such as the Great Train Robbery, the Party of Fools Express, Scottish Highland Train, Murder Mystery Train, Pumpkin Train, Easter Train, Mothers / Fathers Day Trips, and many more. These excursions can be organized either as group trips or as company charters.

Sacramento Great Train Robbery: This delightful fantasy ride begins from Woodland, in which you get to experience a good old-fashioned Western train robbery. A terrific group of magnificent actors dressed in full western wear makes this trip a very entertaining one. This energetic cast encourages all the guests to participate in the shenanigans. Children are sure to derive a kick from this ride.

The train passes through picturesque countryside, making a lunch halt in a park, where you can have a picnic barbeque by the river. The highlight of the trip is a shootout scene staged by the actors at a place called Robbers Roost enroute the journey.

Sierra Railroad Party Train: In this journey, you can enjoy the rich history of the third oldest short line railroad in North America while you travel through 32 miles of countryside which is completely unspoiled, filled with orchards, rolling hills, and farmland. You will enjoy sighting wildlife like egrets and blue herons perched in the near-by streams and ponds, coyotes on the prowl, rabbits nestling near the track, and red-tail hawks hovering in the skyline.

Sierra Railroad is more commonly known as The Movie Railroad. Due to its superb scenery, this railroad is singled out by movie producers from around the world as a preferred location for filming. The train comprises of elegantly refurbished dining cars with various art-decor patterns adorned with delicate sconces, and a lounge car that includes a full-bar with a dance floor. The historic Baldwin Diesel Engine pulls the train.

Mother/Father Day trips: How does this trip sound to you? You can give this wonderful gift to your parents. This is a complete fishing trip combined with drifting through giant redwoods, and maybe also indulging in a little antique shopping. Your parents can enjoy this breathtaking ride down the world famous Smith River.

So what are you waiting for? Whether its a romantic weekend out, or a family excursion, just dial the number and go to the perfect getaway, and create some unforgettable memories. You can also gift these trips to someone special.
