Part of the fun of being in a new city is getting out to discover the local attractions. San Diego, as it turns out, never gets boring. I've mentioned before my love for Balboa Park, one of San Diego's grandest spots. It really is a jewel. There are several museums I can't wait to explore, but first on the list was the Railroad Museum. Bennett has recently taken a huge interest in all things "Choo Choo," so I knew this would be a hit. And a hit is was. They had some pretty amazing scenes in there, with so much history about the California Railroads. They had beautiful rural scenes, super detailed crime scenes, an old drive-in movie (it was playing!) and tons of old guys acting like kids. It was great! Miniatures everywhere! We were lucky enough to speak with one of the "conductors" who was operating his own personal train on one of the tracks. He turned on the lights and horn for Bennett and gave us a few insider tips about when to come back to see even more trains. Bennett even got to push some buttons! Apparently, volunteers bring in their personal collections to ride the rails. My child was mesmerized and kept chanting "Choo Choo" the remainder of the day. We finished the afternoon with a little stroll around the park and hit our usual spots before heading home. I can't wait to take him back.
