The Christmas City of Duluth has TWO great holiday train rides to choose from. Both trains depart from Fitger’s, a shopping complex on the shore of Lake Superior. The Christmas City Express takes riders to the Duluth Depot for a story experience and visits with Santa. The Bentleyville Shuttle Train brings riders to an outdoor holiday-light display:


The Christmas City Express train is the premiere excursion of the season, and although it does not stop at Bentleyville, it does pass by it. The Bentleyville Shuttle Train is designed to be a fun addition to your night traveling to Bentleyville, and an ease on parking at this very popular attraction.
