Fall Foliage Tours: Hop On The Train And Enjoy The View

Fall: Driving through the back roads of Maine is a great way to enjoy the fall foliage…if you’re the passengers. If however, you are always the driver and you don’t usually get the opportunity to enjoy the scenery then perhaps you should consider taking a trip with your friends or family aboard the Maine Eastern Railway. During the fall months, you can enjoy a scenic ride through the mid-coast region where the vibrant colors of the leaves reflect on the blue ocean in the background. Hop on the train in Brunswick and enjoy the ride all the way to Rockland. Along the way, don’t be surprised if you spot wildlife and quiet inlets where the sea meets the land. Once you get into Rockland, there is plenty to see and do. Whether you stop in at one of the many restaurants or take some time to explore the Farnsworth Museum there is definitely something for everyone. Rockland’s Main Street has undergone a total transformation in the past couple of years and the area is booming with great shops and restaurants. You could spend the day enjoying the sites or plan your trip around one of the town’s popular events like the Rockland Lobster Festival or the annual Blues Festival. The leaves are getting ready to change so hurry up and make your plans now to enjoy a scenic ride on the Maine’s own passenger train through the fall foliage!
