Edaville Railroad

We did from our annual Edaville Railroad visit a few nights ago. It seems they've added more lights to the train ride which is nice to see! We went on a Tuesday, got there at 4 and had the place to ourselves for at least and hour! We went on the 5pm train ride with plenty of room. The park was a bit more crowded by the time we departed the train but still no where near the crowds they see on the weekends!

It is pretty expensive...we were lucky and had a coupon from the Mass Pass book as well as free passes from our rec department. Admission is $18 per person and 2 and under is free. But dinner cost us $62 for the five of us and then another $24 for fried dough later!

Edaville is open weekdays from 4-9pm and weekends from 2-9. There are coupons available on their website. Coupons available if you are a fan on facebook and there's two for one admission coupons in the Entertainment book and the Mass Pass book.

We go every year and never miss it!

Sleigh Ride at Cabbyshack!

This is an event I wish I could get to check out!

Cabbyshack in Plymouth is having a sleigh ride with Santa on Friday, December 18th from 6-9. Your family can ride along with Santa in a clydesdale-driven sleigh! There will be sweet treats and hot cocoa along with Christmas carols! There is a nominal fee for the sleigh ride but I think that it's free if you have a Cabbyshack receipt for dinner that night.

If you go, let me know how it is! =)
