SACRAMENTO, Calif. – (2016) What could be better than spending a relaxing summer afternoon enjoying an excursion train ride and a river boat cruise on the Sacramento River? Getting a special combo deal of course. California State Parks, the California State Railroad Museum & Foundation and Hornblower Cruises have teamed up to offer a special combo price for guests wishing to enjoy both uniquely Sacramento experiences on weekends during August 2016. The special ticket combo is being offered for the noon train ride and the 1:30 p.m. river cruise departure on the following weekends this summer: August 6-7, 13-14, 20-21, and 27-28.
First, excursion train ride guests board the train at the Central Pacific Freight Depot on Front Street between “J” And “K” Streets in Old Sacramento where they will delight in the sights, smells and sounds of an authentic, historic locomotive as it rolls along the levees of the Sacramento River for a six-mile, 45 minute roundtrip excursion. Appealing to all ages, the experience offers guests the chance to enjoy train travel from an earlier era. Then, after the train ride, guests will venture the very short distance to the L Street dock where they will board the Capitol Hornblower and enjoy an amazing one-hour cruise on the picturesque Sacramento river while learning more about the city’s fascinating history.
Offered at a significant savings, combo excursion train ride (coach seating) and river cruise tickets are available online only at www.californiarailroad.museum and cost $20 for adults, $10 for youths (ages 6-17), and are free for ages 5 and under.
