My boys love trains (as evidenced by C’s proclamation at Tom’s Trains). When we had a free, dreary weather weekend I decided to do a day trip to the NC Transportation Museum.  Yay for trains! This museum is in Spencer,…

Children’s Museum of Alamance County

From Sarah C.: The Children’s Museum of Alamance County opened last year. Located in Graham, it’s a little drive from the Triangle, but completely worth it and easily accessed right off I-40/85. Initially it was open on weekends only but…
