People and pups interested in history have a couple of great options within a half-hour’s drive. The Western Railway Museum, on a rural stretch of Highway 12, is a fascinating living-history museum that aims to help visitors envision what transportation in Northern California was like a hundred years ago.
Dogs are welcome to join their people in examining exhibits that include an extensive collection of historic streetcars and interurban electric trains. Well behaved tail-waggers also are invited to join their people on an electric train trip through the peaceful Montezuma Hills over the original historic main line of the Sacramento Northern Railway. Bring a picnic to enjoy at this great family destination!
