The sad reality is that Houston is not exactly the best city in the world if you're a train enthusiast. The good news is that in the world of park trains, Hermann Park has one of the best anywhere, and it's something that every single person reading this should experience at least once. On your 18-minute trip, you'll see some of the prettiest sights Houston has to offer. Talk about a nice way to get around the park on a hot summer afternoon. You can even take things up a notch and become an engineer for a day, with your own cap and bandanna. Laugh all you want, but you're never too old to experience the joy that comes with a good train ride. Hop on and see.
