Just 15 miles south of Cleveland, Ohio, in the town of Peninsula lies the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Nestled along the banks of the Cuyahoga River in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the railroad offers passengers 26 miles of rivers, forests and wildlife. For thousands of years Indians used the Cuyahoga River and Valley as a north-south transportation corridor. Later the Ohio & Erie Canal provided the early settlers a slow, but easy way to move bulk goods and people. This railroad offers a one-way ticket for those riders who choose to bike back along the original towpath. The grandeur and elegance of dining on the rails can be experienced on the Grand Traverse train in northwestern Lower Michigan. The train features a five-course gourmet meal prepared and cooked entirely on the train. Passengers are transported on restored Pullman articulated dining cars that were built in 1940.
