I grew up with the Chattanooga Choo Choo, and lived a long time in Choo Choo town. Today I discovered another town in love with trains, Tacoma, Washington! Everywhich way we looked, we saw trains or something about trains.
 
The Sounder is a lovely trip from Everett to Tacoma, designed for the commuter. The mini-electric shuttle services the downtown Tacoma area with frequent hop on-hop off stops. And of course, there's AmTrak, want to go to Canada? Or Mexico? Or anywhere along the way?
 
Matt and I wandered around in the shopping spot alongside the station and picked up souvenirs for everyone back home. Odd-meat jerkies (crocodile? buffalo?) and candies and even the makings for beer bread (pour the mixture into a bowl, add a can of beer, stir and bake).
 
Let's check in to our hotel, and rest before dinnertime.
