A Holiday classic on the grand bellevue

What would the Christmas Season be without Charles Dickens' tale of ghosts, humbuggery, and redemption? Come be a part of this imaginative and immersive retelling of the time-honored classic “A Christmas Carol” aboard the Grand Bellevue Rail Dining Experience. As the train makes its way up the scenic coast of Aquidneck Island, the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his unlikely redemption will be played out while you enjoy a gourmet meal and views of Narragansett Bay. As Dickens said "There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor".
