  • My family and I had a wonderful time at Travel Town Museum. It was clean, plenty of green space to relax, walkways flat enough to push a stroller, and the trains were impressive, so huge close up. I am writing this review because of a experience I had at the gift shop. I collect snow globes and thought this would be a good reminder of our wonderful visit. I purchased a snow globe and was showing it to my grand daughter. She dropped it on the cement and it chipped and cracked. I took it into the gift shop and they allowed me to exchange it for a new snow globe. I was so impressed. I would recommend this destination for a wonderful experience!
  • The train equipment need some love the trains and cars were not well taken care of. Travel town is a nice place the grounds are well taken care of the hours are kind of crazy they close as early as 4 on weekdays to me a park like that should be open until an hour before sunset
  • Just like when I was a kid. Lots of things to climb on and explore. Great for all kids
  • Free viewing of many old trains. $2.75pp to ride mini train. Great fun for families w young children
  • Had a great experience! I made a vlog on my Youtube channel Shanell Cubed. You can see how it looks, and the overall enviornment. We went at 11am on a Sunday , and it was perfect. I do wish there was a bit more for kids ages 4-6 to do...but other than that, it was good. Clean, and true fly staff.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
