All Aboard the Santa Cruz Santa Train

All Aboard the Santa Cruz Santa Train

December 03, 2018

As one holiday comes to a close a bunch of other fun ones are all coming to an opening. It is safe to say that the holiday season is in full swing, which means lights are popping up left and right all over Santa Cruz. A great way to experience the lights around town is by taking the Santa Cruz Holiday Lights Train & The Lighting of the Menorah on December 3rd for the Chanukah Train. The Holiday Lights Train runs every Saturday and Sunday in the month of December and has even brought Santa Claus down all the way from the North Pole to give the official tour. Sip on Hot Cider and visit with Santa and after the train ride concludes try a fun twist of ice skating at the beach! This holiday ride is so unique you’ll be exiting the train screaming “ALL ABOARD SANTA'S AWAITIN'!”
