Spirit of Jasper … Train Excursion Extraordinaire

A few years back I got to visit the Spirit of Jasper train while touring the area. I loved the old train depot …IMG_6270 IMG_6277And how they have reinvented the train cars. IMG_6275 IMG_6273Now visitors can choose from several excursions to explore the beauty of Southern Indiana:

  • Jasper to French Lick
  • Ride and Dine
  • Strassenfest Ride
  • Chocolate Wine and Dine
  • Fall Foliage

Several of these are on my bucket list (fall foliage for sure) and thankfully I had a friend that sent me some images that showed part of what she experienced …IMG_5158 IMG_5132editedAnd of course, food is served on board …123 122So, while you are planning your list of must dos in the state, be sure to include Spirit of Jasper at the top. Watch the calendar for upcoming dates and take full advantage of the area. Visit the Monastery of Immaculate Conception or one of several other attractions in the area like I did.

For more information on all there is to do in the area (like the annual Strassenfest festival) be sure to Visit Dubois County.
