I highly recommend a stop at the Foley Railroad Museum. The model town is exceptional. A chance to go on a real train and for kids a fun ride on a fun train around the block of the Museum.

Love the model train exhibit--it is amazing. The props and scenery in it are interesting and nostalgic. The museum offers a lot of artifacts; there's even a real steam engine and caboose on the grounds.
