Museum of Transportation: Bobby Darin's Car of the Future

Bring your walking shoes, as it is spread out. There are benches to rest on, but if it's sunny out, you'll want water with you.

Tugboat.

Museum of Transportation, Trains and a Tugboat

A huge collection of railroading's awesome past. Rusty, broken engines reside next to new ones, some of which you can enter. Lots of fun!
