Tram Tours & Bee-Line Shuttle

Tram parked in front of the visitor center with tulips

You've made it to the Arboretum. Now it's time to explore! In addition to driving Three-Mile Drive and strolling Three-Mile Walk, adult visitors are also welcome to join a tour guide for a narrated, 1-hour, covered Tram Tour on Three-Mile Drive.

If you want to simply get around, check out the Bee-Line Shuttle, a hop-on-hop-off open-air ride.

All ages are welcome on both the Tram Tours and the Bee-Line Shuttle. The Bee-Line is a better option for our youngest visitors. The length and narration of the Tram Tours are designed with adult visitors in mind. However, if children do ride the tram, children ages three and under may ride on the lap of an adult; ages four and up must be in their own seat.
