Do you like trains?

The railroad had a huge part in our part of the country so there is a lot of very interesting history there even if you aren’t interested in the locomotives themselves and we have a huge resource for everything railroad right near by!

The Southern California Railway Museum in Perris has several events coming up this fall, not to mention it’s a great place just to come and wander around. There are lots of hands-on exhibits and even a real train to catch a ride on. Take the family and check it out!

Here are some links to train activities and ideas to help you make the most of the day!
