We enjoyed everything in Tweetsie. Family oriented! Plenty to do! Not to crowded when we visited. Going back again this year.

My 4 year old had the best time! All of the "character actors" were so nice and friendly with the kids. Loved them! We can't wait to go back.

Tweetsie Railroad never disappoints and this season is just as fabulous! The park is clean and fully handicapped accessible. The staff actually enjoy their jobs at the park and it shines through their friendly and welcoming personalities! We opted to pack our lunch and got our hands stamped for re-entry to the park. Picnic tables and trash cans are available... More
