  • I wanted to visit a granddaughter who likes Thomas train. It was a precious time for me to see firsthand the trains that I had or had seen.

  • Traveltown was a favorite place for her granddaughter. There were a few trains, and I was very inspired here.

  • Travel Town is a super (and free!) attraction for train enthusiasts, both young and old. It is a compact attraction with room for kids to explore. We visited on a Sunday morning and it was not crowded and there was plenty of parking, too. The kids loved exploring the various trains including many of the hands-on attractions. We also enjoyed a train ride around the park, which came with a reasonable cost. There is a picnic area that has some vending machines. There is a cute museum shop that sells train-themed items, at prices comparable to similar retail outlets.
  • Perfect place for kids to enjoy (adults as well). Mt kids enjoyed exploring all the trains and locomotives and not to mention the train ride they loved it. On the day of my visit there were a few families having birthday parties I guess it's a great place for a train theme party.
