XMAS TRAIN REVIEW! Child Riders over 6 years old may find this is "for babies" Tots were THRILLED! The Xmas Train costs 7.50 a person and is a cheap way to make holiday memories for a 2 year old! The 2 year old, his Auntie, myself and Grandpa were very impressed with the decor. Mr. Conductor is always a sweetheart BTW! We didn't wa...

Travel Town makes me think of being little; I went with my parents and grandparents right after I lost my first tooth, and my grandparents gave me a pen with hearts on it (I still have it). When I was little, you could run around in the trains and climb around on the engines, which you can't do any more; I understand why, but it's still a bummer.  Per a sign, there are tours where you can go in the cars, but not daily.  As it was, the only passenger car open was hosting a kid's birthday party, which I suppose I could have crashed ("Hey, can I have some cake?"), but I didn't.

Tucked away in Griffith Park, Travel Town Museum was a very amusing experience.  It's pretty neat to be in a setting where you can freely climb trains and explore the many detailed parts of a train.  I was thoroughly fascinated with the great train...

Travel Town! Not Just for Stoners My significant other was skeptical about Travel Town.  When I brought up going to the Train Museum, hidden on the north side of Griffith Park next to the Zoo and the 134 Freeway, he scoffed and said that 'a certain mind-altering substance would have to be present for him to waste his Sunday afternoon on a bunch of broken down locomotives'. I must admit, I was worried too when  a bunch of kids came bursting through the wooden gated entrance of Travel Town just as we arrived.  Maybe you did have to be a die-hard, lunch-box-toting, Thomas the Train fan to enjoy this place. Not that I don't love Thomas the Train. I mean, he 'thought he could', and he did. What could be more insp...
