Hocking Valley Scenic Railway

Want to see a side of southeastern Ohio you’ve never seen before? I highly recommend spending a little time riding the rails of the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway. Trains run all weekend long, from Thursday-Sunday. Tickets on this train sell out quickly, so if you’re thinking about going, be sure to book relatively quickly.
