Polar Express and Table Mountain Inn

Polar Express and Table Mountain Inn

The Railroad Museum has already started setting up their backdrops for The Polar Express.  This is a seriously fun special event, and the tickets sell seriously fast.  I checked for tickets last December, and found that only SINGLE tickets were left…as in, one seat left on an entire train.  If you’re thinking of going as a family or a group, do not delay–buy your tickets now.  The Polar Express will run November 10th – December 23rd.

The Table Mountain Inn is offering a special rate for Polar Express fans.  Call 303-277-9898 to reserve a room and ask for the “POLAR EXPRESS RATE.”  You’ll get 20% off the best available rate!  The discounted rate is available 11/6 – 12/29.  Blackout dates may apply.
