Coopersville is a quaint little Midwestern town about 20 minutes NW of Grand Rapids located at two convenient exits off I-96. It has several downtown dining opportunities along with a nice ice cream shop. There’s also a farm museum and historical museum available for touring. Near the west 1-96 exit there are a choice of fast food eateries. Some bus tours have combined a trip to Meijer Garden with our train ride to excellent reviews. Combining a visit with the President Ford Museum in Grand Rapids is another possibility.

We handle groups of up to 300 on our train. We also have a historic disable accessible coach with wheel chair lift.
