A fun diversion while visiting Cape Cod in Massachusetts is a spin on the Cape Cod Central Railroad. Whether you choose to ride the narrated scenic tour (with views of cranberry bogs, woodlands and marshes) or the Family Supper Train (with balloon twisting, face painting and tunes) there's something for everyone. On the latter, there's also kid-friendly fare, in case your little ones don't go in for the traditional dining-car experience.
