Andy and I decided that this weekend we didn’t need any essentials so we decided lets stay home and think about our adventure blog topic for this week.

Todays adventure takes us to Travel Town Museum which is located in Griffith Park, CA. It is a town full of trains that have not been used for years. The trains do not move, they are parked and you are able to go inside one of the trains. If you love trains this is the place to come and if you have a kid who is obsessed with trains then this is your place. This is a place where you can let your kid run around. These trains are very old and are in need of some tender, loving, care, but they still are amazing to see. We wish we were able to go into more trains and be able to see how they looked from the inside when they were created. However, we loved using our imagination and just wondering how they use to look like. Let’s continue with our adventure.
