This historic railroad began in 1890, when Dr. William Seward Webb, a medical doctor, financed its construction. It was built in the wilderness of the Adirondacks and was completed in just 18 months. More than a hundred years later, a group of devoted rail enthusiasts started restoring it after it was dormant for decades. Why We Recommend This Activity The Adirondack Railroad offers you one of the top fun things to do in Adirondacks with kids as you travel through forests and over rivers and streams via rail bikes or train. During the winter, you can also enjoy the classic Polar Express Train ride for nostalgic Christmas vibes. Santa will board the train with your family and give each child a silver bell, the way it was in the film. You and your kids would be encouraged to come in PJs for the theme
