adventures of Drew and Max: Tweetsie Railroad

We took a day away to the mountains on Sunday and enjoyed a family day at Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock! Max and Drew both love trains, so we love to visit Tweetsie. We always start by taking a ride on good old No. 12, a vintage steam locomotive, better known as Tweetsie. The boys love it, and their faces are priceless, no matter how many times we go. We also love the Mouse Mine ride and the deer park, along with tons of the other rides. The boats are a huge hit with our little brood, and Drew rode with Max for the first time this weekend. I was definitely standing close by, dying from the sweetness and snapping tons of photos. It was a day I will not soon forget!

 The ride to Boone never disappoints me, even on the foggiest of days.

If you live close by, we definitely recommend getting season passes for Tweetsie! The cost is minimal, and it makes for a great get away to cooler weather and family fun. We go about once a month or more, and it is so much fun!
