To rail fans, Altoona is paradise. The Horseshoe Curve National Historic Landmark is an engineering marvel; dozens of trains round the curve each day. The Railroaders National Museum, with three floors of exhibits and interactive displays, includes a rail yard with actual rolling stock and special exhibits for kids. A gallery of the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art features train and nature photography, and the Altoona Railfest provides long and short excursions. The area features plenty of lodging, shopping, and outdoor fun for tourists.
