Hop Aboard the Easter Bunny Express: Train Rides for Kids Near Philly

Spring is in the air in Philly, and Easter is on the way. Many of the area's scenic railroads celebrate the season with excursions that include Easter fun.

We've rounded up several Easter-themed trains that are running special events for kids in the Philadelphia area and beyond. Some of these trains include an Easter egg hunt at the halfway stop, so be sure to bring along a basket. It is helpful to check whether the railroad provides a photographer and charges for a picture with the Easter Bunny or if you can bring your own camera.

Plan out your Easter train ride with this helpful list. Then extend Easter fun by reviewing our Spring Fun Guide, which include events throughout the Philadelphia area..

As with all current events, COVID-19 protocols are in place. Visitors must wear masks and observe social distancing guidelines. Tickets should be purchased in advance as most venues are limiting capacity. If an event appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
