What a fun idea!! Take a day trip on the Amtrak train to Charlotte or many towns in between.
Trains do excite the children and the old ones, too. I boarded the train at the Cary depot with my mom and we took the trip to the Salisbury Station. That is where you get offto visit the NC Train museum. (www.nctrans.org) You must check that out. The children will love the Thomas Trains and the roundhouse.
Some folks might like to take a day trip to Charlotte. With the diners car full of snacks and food, even beer – how could you go wrong.
