Life Long Learning on the Road... An Autumn Train Ride

Wednesday, October 18
If you’re looking for a truly unique fall foliage trip, you’re going to want to travel up to New Castle County and board the Wilmington and Western Railroad during one of their Autumn Leaf excursions. The railroad itself dates back to the late 1800s and operates as a rolling museum, where you can experience the same routes that were used to transport goods between the mills on Red Clay Creek and the Port of Wilmington. The Autumn Leaf trains will take you through some of the most incredible fall foliage in Delaware, and because you won’t have to drive, you’ll be able to “ooh” and “aah” at all of the sites. All aboard!

What’s Included:

– Depart late morning

– Lunch at the Iron Hill Brewery on the river in Wilmington

– Autumn train ride from the Greenbank station

– Depart for home approximately 4:30pm
