Fun for the whole family. For $3 you take a trip around the area -- twice. Get there before 3:00 as it closes then. Located in Griffith Park. One of several things to do there.

We went on a day that the Walt Disney Barn was open, too. The combination of the history of Disney's love of trains with the friendly talkative volunteers who shared it and then the train ride by the Steamers was terrific. The ride was more...More
