The Polar Express Rolls into St. Louis with Santa and Sweets

Allllllll aboard! St. Louis children of all ages are taking a fantasy journey to the North Pole on the Polar Express, which departs from Union Station throughout December. Based upon the book and film of the same name, the magical train ride features a helpful conductor, hot chocolate-dispensing waiters and a special visit from Santa Claus. Pajama-clad kids, nostalgic adults and date-night lovebirds alike also have the option of a dinner and dessert buffet in the majestic Grand Hall of the Union Station Hotel. More information about Polar Express tickets is available here.
