What could be more fun than a good old fashioned family train ride? Grab the kids and head out to Goat Hill Junction Railroad, home of the Orange County Model Engineers, for one of their many public ride days and enjoy a ride around the park. Marvel at the trains, appreciate the craftsmanship, and enjoy the world of the model railroad as the whole family spends some fun quality time together.
The Orange County Model Engineers host public rides every third weekend of every month, with more than 30,000 people taking a ride on their trains every year. These free rides are always a hit with train-lovers and children of all ages, as they hop on the model train and enjoy a 12-minute ride around the park. In addition to the fun of riding on one of these trains, you will get to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Costa Mesa Golf Course as well as plenty of bridges and other variations on the terrain.
If you have a family birthday coming up, then reserve the trains on a Saturday morning and invite all your kid’s best friends. They will all have a great time riding the train, and you can have the fun of throwing your little budding engineer his own train-themed birthday party. Or just grab the whole family for a fun day on the rails.
For a family fun day like this, make sure you take the whole crew in style. Pack your family up in the 2014 Luxury Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Is the best car to transport your whole family in total comfort and elegance, while enjoying the total opulence and class of the Mercedes-Benz. Plus, you’ll have plenty of room for some picnic supplies and a blanket or chairs, so you can make a whole day of this great destination and enjoy even more family time together.
