Autumn views are on their way, bringing us stunning colours and gorgeous scenery. It's the time of year where we put on our favourite cozy sweater and embark on scenic hikes to take in the sights of changing leaves. This year, enjoy the fall scenery in a whole new way. Take in the stunning views as you ride this historic railway near Toronto. You'll be swept back in time on this truly magical adventure!
The Halton County Radial Railway, located in Milton, is Ontario's first and largest electric railway. The museum is home to various old fashioned TTC streetcars that you can explore and ride on. Admission includes unlimited trips down a 2-kilometre long scenic railway track to the historic Rockwood station. Hop on board to see some amazing fall leaves and experience a traditional streetcar!
The charming old 1934 streetcar will whisk you away from the quaint station into a colourful nature trail. Of course, no trip is complete without an ice cream stop, and this streetcar has you covered. You'll stop for a tasty treat at the railway's secret ice cream shop, which is hidden inside an old streetcar.
You can explore the display barns and grounds, and take a peek inside the gift shop, which sells railway-themed trinkets and delicious treats. You might find yourself hopping back on the streetcar for another ride (and maybe another ice cream cone) before the day is done.
