Favorite LA Spots: Travel Town Museum

Fifth in the Favorite LA Spots series is Travel Town Museum, a small lovely park featuring retired steam engine trains in the heart of Griffith Park (also home of the Griffith Observatory).

James and I typically pack a picnic before heading over to this Los Angeles treasure to enjoy a sunny day, and then walk around the park admiring the trains.

Walking among these iron giants gives any visitor a sense of childlike wonder, and a glimpse of nostalgic history.

One of my favorite things to do is climb up the side ladders and go inside the trains.

Considering James and I are both quite fond of trains, and the fact that Travel Town has convenient free parking and no admission fee, it’s pretty obvious why this park makes the list of our favorite LA spots.
