The Shoreline Trolley Museum is great for kids! The museum offers Christmas rides for the children as well for adults. The old advertising on the train brings back time to many. It has a great store. The prices are very reasonable for the entire family....More

I took the trolley as a kid and so I took my kids too. Same experience hasn't changed in 30 years except I got older lol Take a nice ride in fall or late spring because there's no heat or AC.
