This Epic Train Ride In North Carolina Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience

I fondly remember my first trip to Tweetsie Railroad. I was just a little tyke and my parents took me to this wondrous land with train rides, dancing girls, and a Wild Wild West theme. At the time, my young brain fully believed I was transported to (essentially) an actual Wild Wild West land where outlaws roamed with pistols and dancing girls flailed their skirts and kicked their legs high in the air. I was so overwhelmed, I insisted on hiding beneath the skirt of one of the dancers I met after the show (yep, embarrassing childhood story I just shared with the internet).

For more information, visit Tweetsie’s website or Facebook page.

Every tried and true North Carolinian knows a summer in North Carolina isn’t complete without a trip to Tweetsie! Have you been here before or have plans to attend this summer? Any Tweetsie memories you want to share?
