McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park

10 Sep

Whether or not everyone in the family likes train, planning a trip to the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in an Arizona charter bus is surely something to look forward to – especially when you also plan to have a picnic there as well. When it comes to having food with the family, any place is a good place. Besides, how often would you and your family be able to visit a place that also doubles up as a picnic place? The McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park is one of the few of such places – a great place to explore the park that features the famous railroad cars with an antique carousel that also provides ample spots for visitors to have a picnic after the tour of the museum.

At the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, visitors arriving in Arizona charter buses would be able to enjoy touring the model train museum for free and if you want to bring the kids for some fun at the carousel and train ride, you can either buy a book of 12 tickets for $10 or purchase a wristband that is good for the whole day for $10. For every carousel and train ride, they each cost two tickets per person. The train ride takes about twelve minutes and it goes across two bridges and one tunnel, while the carousel is really big and it also happens to be of the main attractions of the park. Kids simply love riding on the carousel.

For parents who travel with their kids to the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in the Arizona charter bus, and are concern about the cleanliness of the park – well, you can rest assure that the park is always clean, very well maintained and they make the park a great place for families, especially the ones with kids who love trains! During spring, this park is beautifully decorated with Christmas tree lighting and it is a great time to come too because as go on the train rides, the holiday lights gives you a “magical fantasy winter wonderland” kind of feeling. The interesting thing about the park is that there are two playgrounds there. One of the playground is considered to be the biggest playground around the town and has about three or four slides, some swings, towers and monkey bars. The other playground is found in the middle of the park and comes with a western theme to it – this one has a slide, a pretend jail and a wagon that kids would love to play on.
