We have a unique opportunity in the Twin Cities to enjoy the holidays on Planes, Trains & Sleighs (mostly trains), and we’ve rounded up all we can find just for you and your family!
NOTE: As we have come to expect, 2020 will have a smaller selection of planes, trains & sleighs to choose from than most years, but some events are going forward with social distancing measures. Other events are going virtual this year. We’ll keep adding and updating as the Holiday season approaches.
