For years, the Charlie Russell Chew Choo has been a summer staple in Lewistown, Montana. This experience includes a fake train robbery, a fabulous dinner, and a tour of Montana's landscape. It's a perfect date night that you and your partner will never forget.

What does this have to do with the holidays? Well, the Charlie Russell Chew Choo also hosts a special North Pole Adventure from late November through December. The train ride still includes dinner, but it ends at Santa Claus' house, where your kids can meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. 

To make the ride even more jolly, kids 12 and under can take the train for free. There's nothing more cheerful than a family train ride through a winter wonderland, ending with a face-to-face meeting with Santa.That's what the holidays are all about; making memories.

Unfortunately, these tickets go fast, and this year's North Pole Adventure is already sold out. The North Pole Adventure might have more tickets open up, so keep your eye on their Facebook for details.

So now you know about one of Montana's best holiday adventures!
