family friendly activity? If so, then be sure to spend a
day at Tweetsie! The Tweetsie Railroad, named as such for

on Main Street, the games and rides in County Fair, or test
your aim at the shooting gallery and arcade. On Miner’s

magicians and illusionist and other attractions designed
to delight the whole family.
