|Orange Groves in Fillmore, CA|
Nestled on the 126 Fwy halfway between Santa Clarita, CA and Ventura, CA is the quaint little town of Fillmore. It's a beautiful drive and you're nestled in the birthplace of the famous Valencia oranges. A neat trip back into times past, you'll be enchanted on a train ride on Fillmore & Western Railway.
I have personally taken this trip many times, but I will confess, my favorite of their train rides was the Valentines Day train that I took with my now ex-husband back in 2005. Included with the price of your train ride, you'll enjoy a gourmet dinner, and chocolates for every passenger. They also offer entertainment with the cost of admission.
So pick up a phone, and book Valentines night with your sweetie aboard the Fillmore and Western Railway. For information on this years train ride, click here.
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
I hope that whatever you do, you chose to spend it with those you love.
