Tweetsie Railroad Themepark has been a landmark in the Boone/ Blowing Rock area since 1957, the railroad since 1919. Hundreds of moms have driven their kids toward the “tweeting” train whistle on hwy 321!  For a few summers when my kids were little, the Tweetsie Season Pass saved my sanity, as I walked around the park with the baby in the stroller while my toddlers were well entertained.  It kept me in shape, too!

And speaking of “Tweeting,” Tweetsie is on Twitter now, at @tweetsierr.  You can find them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Tweetsie. I’m a little jealous that they got to have their own url, since they have 1000+ fans!

Tweetsie has a jam-packed lineup of special events for the summer, here is the entire schedule:41_web

Meet Dora and Diego: June 26-28

Fireworks Extravaganza: Saturday, July 4 Park open till 9PM

    My favorite Tweetsie memory is taking Madison for fireworks on Fourth of July when she was only 3 weeks old. She slept through the whole thing!

  11. My favorite Tweetsie Memory is when I took my girls for the first time and it brought the biggest smile I was making memories with them that my parents created with me as a small child at the same exact place. I’m a sap aren’t I?

  18. My favorite memory of Tweetsie is my first date with my husband, thirteen years ago. We went to the ghost train and I insisted that we ride the ferris wheel together. He warned me that he was very prone to motion sickness. I didn’t believe him. I should have. 😉

  19. My favorite memory of Tweetsie is when I was a little girl and saw Fred Kirby there, complete with satin cowboy shirt with white fringe. Fred Kirby was a local celebrity; he hosted The Little Rascals on WBTV in Charlotte on Saturday mornings and would appear at Tweetsie often.

    I look forward to taking my little one this summer to ride the train and sit on the horse!

    My favorite “Memories” of visiting Tweetsie Railroad actually have to do with photographs of my brother, aa a toddler, sitting on a horse statue, and many years later, of my sons Corey and Danny having similar photos taken, maybe on the very same horse! I am very much looking forward to my 3rd son, Ezra, sitting on a horse statue and having a similar photo taken! I also think Ezra will really enjoy the animals in the Deer Park, as he is very interested in animals everywhere we travel! Thank you, Tweetsie, for being an outlet for good, clean, family fun for all ages!!!!!!

  27. my sweet son scraping together his pennies to buy chocolate candy at the fudge shop…the “fudge lady” found it precious too and hooked us up with a bit more than pennies would buy!

    I honestly have no memories of Tweetsie yet. I am 26 years old, a single mother of an amazing 2 year old little boy, and neither of us have had the opportunity to go yet. His 3rd birthday is next month and I would LOVE to be able to take him! I want to make memories with him at Tweetsie. 🙂

  66. I have an 8 yr old son that has never been to Tweetsie. My older two children have been. I’d love to take my son.

    We haven’t ever been to Tweetsie before. I think my 2 and 4 year old would love seeing “real” cowboys and Indians, riding the train, and visiting the petting zoo.
