Who says all Christmas cheer has to be kid-friendly?

Hop aboard Tennessee Valley Railroad's vintage, round-end observation car for a one-of-a-kind night out this holiday season with a fun-filled journey to the North Pole.

The museum’s Nightcaps with St. Nick are 75-minute adventures through time departing from Chattanooga’s Grand Junction Depot. Along the way, attendants will serve food and beverages while storytellers read Twas the Night Before Christmas and costumed entertainers sing carols. The first-class trip even includes a visit from St. Nick himself.

How often do you get the chance to sip on seasonal cocktails like Eggnog Brandy Alexander, Peppermint Schnapps Hot Chocolate, Bailey's Irish Cream Coffee, or Chattanooga Whiskey and Coca-Cola while cruising on a luxe 1940s train?

Tickets are $65 each and include two drink vouchers, a dessert plate, and a souvenir mug. Attendees must be 21 years of age or older. Trains depart at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through December 22.

All aboard, y’all!
