This is such a unique experience!! You literally step back in time to Michigan in the mid to late 1800! We were there at Christmas time and it was beautifully lit and decorated. I loved riding on the steam train and seeing the lights around the lake. Also you have to see the play they do in the opera house!!... More

Great place with enough things to do and enough events to warrant a yearly pass. It's a little too costly to go here with a family for a one time trip. It's definitely worth the visit but you'd be better off getting an annual pass as it isn't that much more and you get access to multiple visits, all of... More

Took my 6 year old grandson for his first train ride at Huckleberry railroad. It was comfortable on the train even though it was freezing and snowy outside. The ride is approximately 45 minutes long. There were buildings open that you could go into while walking the village so that you could stay warm. The trees were brightly lit and... More

Our family (with all adult children) has been doing this for several years. This year we even brought 85 yr old Grammy and she loved it! The train ride is a bit cheesy but it's fun and silly AND tradition. We love grabbing a little hot cocoa and kettle corn too. Oh and don't forget the Christmas melodrama in the... More

When you go... Buy tickets ahead.... Sells out fast. Dress warm.... Train is not that warm . Train is nice & clean. The audio could be updated... Sound very "canned" and not even with the light show. Lights were nice.... I think it would be more festival with snow.... Not brown & wet....Felt park could of cleaned or de-iced the... More

Crossroads Village is a project preserving Genesee County Buildings (and Railroad Equipment) from the mid to late 1800s that was created for the US Bicentennial in 1976. At Christmas, the village is well decorated with decorations and lights and creates a festive holiday spirit. (From our 2015 visit, the facility has made lots of investments in updating and improving lighting... More

After a beautiful, quaint and WONDERFUL Christmas experience, we have a new family tradition. We had a group of 11 ranging from elderly, disabled, teens to toddlers. All were thrilled and able to be accommodated to make it thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Always a good light show on the Christmas train. Buy your tickets early they sell out fast! Good time for all ages.

During an unseasonably warm December weekend we decided to visit Crossroads Village & Huckleberry RR for their holiday train ride & activities. Of the many winter train rides in the Detroit area I felt this was the best for our money and time. I also liked that we would be able to see the village on our own time table.... More

A nice choice year 'round! Enjoy a fine 45 minute train ride behind what once was a working steam engine out in Colorado! Historic buildings. Make sure you take this place in during Christmas! Train runs complete with a caboose to ride in too! Lots of photo opportunities as well! Put this on your "to do" list.
