The only way to make a scenic train ride through the beautiful vistas of wine country better is to make it a scenic train ride through the beautiful vistas of wine country that involves stuffing your face with gourmet food, delicious cocktails, and fine vino. Though, as it turns out, the folks at the Napa Valley Wine Train have conceived of an even cooler way to spend your time on the rails soaking up the sights with its brand new Day of the Dead-themed "Spirit Train," which takes passengers through the area at dusk to celebrate the beloved Mexican holiday.
The Wine Train takeover is the latest offering from the popular railway attraction, and is designed to bring to life the spirit of the ancient multi-day holiday. And if you've seen/sobbed through Pixar's excellent recent film Coco, then you already know what a colorful and joyous occasion El Dia de los Muertos is, during which people make altars to loved ones who've passed away, tell stories, and feast on delicious food and drink. The NVWT's Spirit Train will bring the essence of the holiday to the rails for a special three-hour trip on Saturday, October 27.
