There is something charming about a street car and my two year old nephew was impressed. My city feels small and sweet when there is someone acting as a crossing guard for a restored trolley.

For $2 you can ride back in history. The streetcar has been beautifully restored, even the ads from the 1930s. The volunteer conductors share some information, every conductor is different. I would have liked a longer ride but it was just right for my 4...More
