Celebrate a Valentine State of Mind With Chocolate at Verde Canyon Railroad

Chocolate Lovers' Train at Verde Canyon Railroad

The U.S. government was probably not thinking of the sweet romance of chocolate on Feb. 14, 1912 when it declared Arizona “The Valentine State.” Verde Canyon Railroad, however, can’t help but think of chocolate! The scenic railroad’s popular Chocolate Lovers’ Special, now in its 15th year, celebrates Valentine’s Day in a most rare and wild way.

In February, Verde Canyon Railroad fills the senses with love through the hypnotic rhythm of the rails, enchanting canyon views, glimpses of soaring eagles and quality time with someone dear. And, savoring the sweet, sumptuous chocolate served on Valentine’s Day creates a feeling of ecstasy not unlike the sensation of falling in love. The confectionary celebration fills the first-class cars with the intoxicating scent and flavor of chocolate via delicious pastries, cakes, and luscious hand-dipped delicacies. A free-flowing chocolate fountain is surrounded by marshmallows, fresh fruit, and pretzels for dipping. “Toast with specialty cocktails and dunk with flavored-coffees,” says Teresa Propeck, vice president of marketing. “Sweethearts can share nibbles of delectable desserts while enjoying the tastiest treat of all: the decadent, wild winter scenery of the Verde Canyon!”

There is no need to find an elusive “golden ticket” for this sensational journey into the land of chocolate. All that’s needed is a ticket to ride the Verde Canyon Railroad. The Chocolate Lovers’ Special features exclusive first-class accommodations that lavish passengers with luxurious style, an abundant selection of appetizers and attentive beverage service right at one’s seat. Adjoining open-air cars share the crisp scenery of late winter, rich with soaring eagles, bright blue skies and crimson cliffs.
