Essex Steam Train & Riverboat Cruise
Featuring Lunch at the Griswold Inn
Start your day with a visit to the historic hamlet of Essex for a delicious, three-course lunch at the Griswold Inn near the Connecticut River.
Next, it’s all aboard the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat for a narrated round-trip, just in time to enjoy the best of Indian Summer. Steam through the Connecticut River Valley in a vintage coach car, as the picturesque New England countryside rolls by.
At Deep River Landing, board the Becky Thatcher riverboat with the sparkling water below and the open sky above. Witness Mother Nature on full display and historic sites including Gillette Castle, Goodspeed Opera House, and the Haddam Swing Bridge.
