Thomas the Tank Engine
Train enthusiasts can hop aboard Thomas the Tank Engine for a fun and educational ride at the Illinois Railway Museum's "A Day Out With Thomas." After Sir Topham Hatt greets all riders, you can get on your way to a Thomas & Friends adventure, the "Mystery on the Rails Tour."
Why go: Your train ticket also gets you unlimited rides on all other museum trains and streetcars, admission to the museum, puppet shows, live music, storytelling, magic and more.
Reconsider: You are a car and bike kind of person.
Friday through Aug. 26 at Illinois Railway Museum, 7000 Olson Road, Union; $19; 815-923-4000, irm.org
