Polar Express

The polar express is a way to see Santa Claus – the railroad runs other events too during the year. We got a booth for the 3 of us, some really bad mugs with really good hot chocolate (wasn’t even watered down) and a big piece of chocolate. 

The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad actually runs out of Byrson City, which is close enough to Cherokee that I combined the two.
