I love Railroad Days. Well, that’s not entirely true. My kids love Railroad Days. What I like, is I can hold off on expensive adventures until Railroad Days. For $15 our family of 4 spends one day in Council Bluffs, IA and one day in downtown Omaha. Today we went to the Union Pacific Railroad, General Dodge House and Rails West Museum. It was fantastic, my 4 year old loved it. He asked anyone that would make eye contact questions about the “old stuff” and trains. We rode the trolley in between spots. Tomorrow we’ll spend the morning at the Durham Museum and Lauritzen Gardens. A weekend full of these activities would cost our family of 4, $78 plus tax. It’s a steal for $15 plus use of the trolley in between. There are some crowds, especially at the Durham but it’s worth it! Especially since they have extra rail crew on hand to answer my son’s endless questions.
