North Shore Scenic Railroad – Discount Tickets on Groupon

I like giving “experience” gifts for the holidays to cut down on clutter and “stuff,” and so this Groupon offer for the North Shore Scenic Railroad in Duluth caught my eye today. There are several options to choose from, whether you’re looking for the 90-minute daily Duluth Zephyr ride or the evening 2.5-hour Music and Pizza Train.

Choose from:

  • Duluth Zephyr Excursion for Two, Valid Sunday to Thursday – $19
  • Duluth Zephyr Excursion for Two, Valid Friday or Saturday – $21
  • Duluth Zephyr Excursion for Four, Valid Sunday to Thursday – $34
  • Duluth Zephyr Excursion for Four, Valid Friday or Saturday – $39
  • Live Music and Pizza Evening Train Tour for Two – $27
  • Live Music and Pizza Evening Train Tour for Four – $52

The trains run from May 1st through July 31st, and you’ll need to make your reservation online in advance. There is a limit of 2 per person, and you may buy 2 additional as gifts. Valid only for coach seating; first class is upgradeable at face value.

The Lakefront Line of the North Shore Scenic Railroad began life back in 1886 as a freight service, with some passenger service before the presence of reliable roadways. More than a century later, the North Shore Scenic Railroad runs that same path, offering residents and tourists alike a taste of old-fashioned transportation and unspoiled natural splendor. Train excursions hug the shoreline of Lake Superior for a part of the route, then lead into the majestic north woods. Riders travel along the tracks in vintage train cars during daily tours held throughout the spring, summer, and fall, as well as special excursions such as elegant dinner train trips and the annual fall beer-tasting train.
