C'Mon N'Ride It (The Train)

You like dancing, he likes diesel--what's a couple to do this Valentine's Day? Well, get the best of both worlds and get on board Grapevine Vintage Railroad's Sweetheart Express, which will leave the Cotton Belt Depot Sunday morning for an afternoon of dining and dancing. Throughout the day you also can enjoy the sounds of strolling violinists--who will perform on the platform as well as on the train--as you head to River Ranch in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards for a fantastic feast. The Sweetheart Express' journey includes mimosas, the perfect appetizer to the champagne brunch featuring local faves like fresh seasonal berries, Texas Caesar Salad, carved prime rib with au jus, and warm artichoke and spinach dip. After brunch, enjoy some light dancing at River Ranch before the train leaves the station to bring you back to the real world. The train leaves the Cotton Belt Depot, 707 South Main Street in Grapevine, promptly at 10:30 a.m., returning at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $80 per person. Call 817-410-3123 or visit gvrr.com.
