If you don’t want to hit up the Easter Egg Scramble, you can hop (get it? “hop?”) on the Peanuts Easter Beagle Express train with the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The Durango train will depart at 9:45 a.m. Saturday, April 15, and return at 3 p.m.
During the ride, little passengers will enjoy crafts, music, games and prizes, and a musician will visit the train’s three Easter-themed passenger cars, performing family-friendly music and reading “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown” story to kids. The train will chug along to Cascade Canyon wye, where everyone can get off the train to take photos with the Easter Peanuts characters. Passengers can also visit the concession car for snacks, and all passengers will receive a special refillable mug.
When the train arrives back at the depot in downtown Durango, stick around for an Easter egg hunt at the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Museum! Before and after the train ride, passengers can also watch a bit of the “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown” movie that will be playing in the gift shop.
Easter Dinner at Durango Restaurants
Easter brunch is right up there with Christmas dinner and Fourth of July barbecues when it comes to meal traditions. But if you don’t feel like roasting a rack of lamb and burning the dinner rolls, several restaurants offer Easter brunch every year, including the Mahogany Grille at the Strater Hotel and the Edgewater Grille at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel.
