My daughter got to take a trip on the famous Charlie Russell Chew Choo in Lewistown last night. This time of year, the train takes on a Polar Express theme and could be a great holiday memory for your family. If you take one of the evening rides, you may want to get a hotel and make a night of it, but at just over two hours from Billings, Lewistown makes for a good day trip...at least until the weather starts getting nasty.

If you can't make it for one of the Polar Express rides, the dinner train might make for a good Mother's Day or anniversary dinner. For fans of Prime Rib and nostalgia, it seems like a good choice.
