A couple of weeks ago, during our family's staycation, we took a short day trip to Blowing Rock, NC with the in-laws for Harper's first amusement park experience. Since Harper is a total tomboy and loves all things transportation, Tweetsie Railroadwas just her cup of tea.
The theme park is designed to look like a western town. When you enter the park, you pay for your "train" ticket. Then wander out of the station onto Main Street. On Main Street you'll find saloons filled with gift shops, food, and fun. All of which we indulged in while waiting for Harper's first train ride to see the Cowboys and Indians.
After the train ride, we caught the chair lift up to the top of the mountain where we visited the petting zoo, played on the slide, and rode ride after ride. And can I just add, Harper rode the rides by herself?! I swear she may have looked scared out of her mind but as soon as the rides ended, she refused to get off and adamantly stated "again, again".
We topped off our trip with a quick bite to eat and then finished up our day at the County Fair section of the park where the go kart, ferris wheel, and merry-go-round rides are unlimited!
All in all it was the perfect family outing and we can't wait to take Harper back again in the future. If you live in the area, definitely check it out! It's worth every.single.penny!
