NEWS FLASH: Kids love trains! Or at least mine does. The monorail at Disney, the kiddie train ride at Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest, and now the Little Florida Coastline Train Ride! If your little one loves trains, we have a quick, inexpensive option for you in Central Florida! The Little Florida Coastline Train Ride is actually outside of the Central Florida Zoo located in Sanford. The best part, is that it’s a really great bolt-on adventure that can be a really fun part of your day while checking out Orlando’s other great entertainment options or as part of a visit to the Central Florida Zoo!
On a recent Sunday adventure, we decided to checkout the Orange County Regional History Center, but they didn’t open until noon. We knew we could kill some time by stopping for lunch, but at 9 am, our little guy was rip roaring’ and ready to go on an adventure. We could have stopped at a number of parks along the way but I had a better idea! Many years ago we visited the Central Florida Zoo and remembered there was some sort of train ride along the perimeter. At the time we didn’t think much of it, as we were with a large group of people and didn’t have any little ones of our own, so we didn’t think about going on what we though was a kidie ride. It turns out this train is known as the Little Florida Coastline Train Ride!
