This may seem weird, but I have never ridden on an actual train in my whole life. I've seen them, I've stood in one, but I have never gone on an extended ride. It's definitely something that is on my bucket list, and I now know the perfect place to go to check it off my list.

I was at a party over the weekend where someone was talking about this awesome moonlight train ride they took in Wisconsin. It was at the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad in Trego, WI.

The moonlight train ride peaked my interest, so I went on a hunt to discover more, and what I found was a whole bunch of different ride options available from the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad. Their most popular rides are the Dinner Train and the Bed & Breakfast Train if you're in a 'date night' kind of mood, but if you want to take the entire family on a ride, they have several different options to choose from.

Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad offers a Family Pizza Train and a Sightseeing Train that run all year long, but they also have special holiday train rides like the Santa Pizza Train and Thanksgiving Lunch Train that sounds like an awesome experience for the whole family!

FYI, Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad also has a Wine and Cheese Train that sounds pretty awesome too. Better book your rides now, because they fill up fast!

Here's a little glimpse of what's in store for your family at the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad...
