If you live in New Hampshire, you have to take a ride aboard the Cog Railway in Bretton Woods. (Just make sure to bring you’re piggy bank).
Think about it! There’s not many places where you can ride a landmark up another landmark!
Just the ride up is an experience. Once you step aboard, you'll notice the seats are a bit slanted. Things will level out as you journey to the top. Everything about the train is a unique part of history, right down to the cogs that keep it on the track.
Once you arrive at the top, you’ll be able to visit the post office and a small snack bar and see 360 degree views that include five states, Canada and the Atlantic Ocean!
The Cog Railway started in 1869, according to the railway's website. This year will mark it’s 149th season when it opens April 21. Trains are scheduled to run to and from the summit every weekend until May 5, when daily operations begin.
Tickets cost between $41 and $78 depending on when you go, what train you board and your age. You can choose from a new biodiesel or the old fashioned steam engine. No matter what you choose, you’ll be in for an unforgettable family adventure in New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountains.
