Best Polar Express Train Rides & Christmas Trains in Los Angeles 2022
'Tis the season for Polar Express train rides or Christmas trains for everyone in the family who likes to ride the rails, from an LA staple in Griffith Park to a book or movie-like adventure on the SoCal Polar Express. So pull on those matching family PJs and get ready to sing some carols, hear a story, chow down on Christmas cookies, and even chance to hand over those wish lists to Santa Claus in person. There are seats available (so far!) on the Christmas train rides below that run from Thanksgiving weekend until Christmas. We recommend booking ASAP because the Polar Express trains are a hot ticket, and tend to book up fast.
