Looking for things to do on a Saturday? Ride the rails for a day of fun!

Celebrating over 150 years of railroading, the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad offers some fun weekend trips from their location in Unity. Just about every weekend, they host fun events, and if you haven’t had the pleasure of a good train ride, this is right up your alley. It really is a treat to experience this, and it can really make a great Saturday road trip. The sights and beauty of the state of Maine are on full display when you take this exciting experience.

Once again, they are planning the Pizza and Whoopie Pie Train Ride. Enjoy some pizza, and Maine’s number one dessert, the whoopie pie, a beverage, plus, a ride on the scenic Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad.

This is one of their most popular events, so get in on the fun early. Tickets are $29 for adults, $19 for children, and infants are free.
