The Magical Christmas Journey™ to the North Pole begins at the Verde Canyon Railroad depot in Clarkdale. The spirit of Christmas will be aglow and visible from afar, beckoning all to experience this dream. Festive lights will be abundant, as will holiday treats available to enjoy while perusing the decorated depot grounds. Luminarias will light the Southwestern-style depot roofline and icicle lighting will adorn the depot’s wrap-around porch and pergola. Children can drop off letters to Santa which will be delivered to the North Pole at the end of the ride.
