Father's Day Activity: Austin Steam Train
Hop on board for some Father's Day fun.
Looking to spend some quality time with your dear old dad this Sunday? Why not do it on a train?
Father’s Day is just one of those days—you know when it is, but somehow, every year, it manages to sneak up on you. Suddenly, it’s the third Sunday in June, and all you have to show for yourself is a few new ties (not to be confused with last year’s similar-but-different ties) and an “I-O-U” good for one hug. Talk about a train-wreck.
This year, though, things are gonna be different.
Instead of just hanging out, opening lame cards you got last minute at the grocery store, try hopping on board of Austin Steam Train’s Father’s Day Flyer for a bit of loco-motive holiday fun.
Just a short drive outside of Austin in Cedar Park, Texas, the Austin Steam Train ride features gorgeous scenery, a tour of the 1912 Bertram train station, and a whole lot of family fun (for best results, leave angst-ridden teenagers at home).
This three-hour excursion is the perfect opportunity for you and your pops to take a historic journey through Texas Hill Country while still getting in some quality time. And what could be better than some quality time with your father?
Spending some quality time while eating some quality food—on a train.
So treat your dad to a gourmet lunch and a fun-filled afternoon this Father’s Day. Who knows—you might even decide to fit the bill.
Ride the Austin Steam Train if: Your dad’s been looking for a safer way to relive his freight hopping glory days.
Don’t Ride the Austin Steam Train if: Thomas the Tank Engine’s ability to speak always made you suspicious.
