79. Ride The Brackenridge Eagle

Whether you've got a thing for miniature trains or just need to spend the day babysitting, the Brackenridge Eagle offers a few miles of tiny tracks to mosey around. Built in 1956, the three trains that tour the Brackenridge Park and zoo area (it's owned and operated by the zoo) are replicas of the 1863 C.P. Huntington No. 3 locomotive. After the ride, keep the kid-friendly escapades going with a trip to the Witte Museum (3801 Broadway) for science and history (if you're looking to save money, the Witte is free on Tuesday afternoons). 3910 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 734-7184, sazoo-aq.org
