Take the Road to Paradise!

The Strasburg Rail Road has been a favorite of Lancaster County visitors for almost as long as we’ve had visitors.

Image the thrill of riding through the scenic Amish countryside of Lancaster County pulled by a historic steam locomotive! This is a genuine thrill for people of all ages.  You can see the train up close before you hop aboard at the East Strasburg Station.  Then enjoy the thrill as you depart Strasburg for Paradise and the countryside.

Enjoy 45 minutes aboard a real, authentic steam train. You can even dine aboard the train. And you can visit other fun shops and things for the kids at the station.
