Connecticut State Parks

Connecticut State Park Journeys: Connecticut Valley Railroad State Park

Locally this is referred to as the Essex Steam Train and I did not know until more recently the actual name and that it’s considered a state park. Awesome! I have been on the train many times for their super popular Christmas train. One autumn I dragged some family on the train and boat ride for a fall tour; that ride was my favorite of them all. I have yet to do the dinner train but it’s on my list.

The grounds are beautifully decorated for autumn, highly recommend going in the fall!

If you’ve ever only done the Essex Christmas train I highly recommend the autumn train and boat ride and buy tickets early 🙂
