Fun family Easter events in NJ where you can catch a train
One thing I love to do is find something that's just a bit different to do with the kids during the holidays. And even though we haven't quite gotten out of the pandemic yet, there are still some fun and exciting things you can do with your family this Easter season.
One way to mix it up? Board a train. I've always enjoyed trains as a kid, and if your kids enjoy them as well, here are some perfect Easter events happening around the Garden State where you can also include a train.
Easter Bunny Express — Black River & Western Railroad
The Black River & Western Railroad is kicking off their 2021 season with a train ride with the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny Express is happening weekends now through April 3, with kids under three riding for free. The train ride is also taking COVID-19 restrictions into place to ensure a fun and safe event with the Easter Bunny. Plus, your kids can also take part in an Easter egg hunt.
