Essex Steam Train & Riverboat, Essex, Connecticut

Named by the Nature Conservancy as one of the "last great places" on Earth, the Connecticut River Valley sets the stage for a nostalgia-filled Fall experience. Foliage lovers who board one of the vintage coaches of the Essex Steam Train soon find themselves transported on an old-fashioned steam journey through some of the world's most magnificent Autumn landscapes.

The train is met by the historic Becky Thatcher Riverboat at Deep River Landing where the option to continue the journey aboard the historic three-deck boat is a choice well taken. Essex Clipper Dinner Train excursions are also options.
