Excursions by rail are returning to Lake County this season with the arrival of the The Royal Palm Railway Experience presented by The Orlando & Northwestern Railway. Excursions will include trips to Tavares and Eustis, Dinner Trains, Pizza Trains and many other themed train rides.
Steam Power returns to Lake County this winter!
Step on board and travel back in time as a vintage steam locomotive carries you into the past. The sound of the whistle, the smell of the smoke, and the allure of steam is most entrancing way to ride the rails. The Jeddo Coal #85 will be visiting from February 15th to March 1st. Ride from Tavares to Eustis and back on a one hour experience.
Travel back in time to the fabulous 40’s, when USO shows, live radio broadcasts, and movie publicity tours were the entertainment roster. The doughboys are back from “over there” and their friends and family are happy to welcome them home…we’re all on track for a happy ending, even if someone on board still had a deadly mission on their mind. See the skirmishes first hand as Connie the Conductor tries to keep the train on time, peace on board, and a smile on every passenger’s face while the showbiz stowaways keep your spirits high-larious. Home front hijinks have never been so fun!
Celebrate a fantastic weekend with home cooking on the Royal Palm. Slow Roasted Round of Beef and Crispy Fried Chicken take center table along with Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Garden-fresh Green Beans, homemade Biscuits served with Molasses Butter and Hot Apple Brown Betty with Vanilla Ice Cream. Gather the family come out for an afternoon of great food and great memories. Children menu is chicken strips, mac & cheese, apple sauce and vegetables.
