National Toy Train Museum

National Toy Train Museum

This station-inspired building houses a collection of toy trains ranging from the 1800’s to the present. With several operating layouts and other local attractions in theme with trains and toy trains, the National Toy Train Museum in Strasburg, Pennsylvania is a stop that should be on your list.

Nemours Mansion and Gardens in Wilmington, DE

Nemours Mansion and Gardens in Wilmington, DE

For the holidays we took a little visit with some family to one of the Dupont mansions. The home is supposedly furnished the way it was left, and decked out for Christmas with a tree in every room. Although the staff kept complaining about the weather, and insisting that spring is the best season to come for a visit, I’d argue that winter is just as good a time as any to see the grounds of the estate.

This past weekend we went camping at Worlds End State Park in PA.  It was the perfect weekend with sunny skies and highs in the mid 70’s.  If you ever get the chance I highly recommend that you go (and of course get the full experience by using a tent!). Check out some (hopefully)awesome photos I grabbed while we were out!

The holidays have somewhat escaped us this year. Although we decorated, things seem different. We aren’t as excited this year and the season seems empty. In an effort to re-kindle our eagerness, we met up with some family to tour Longwood Gardens.
