Home to one of only a few operating train turntables in the United States, Summerville is truly a step back in time. Special events are held at the Summerville Depot monthly March through December. Steam into Summerville Railroad Days runs October until mid-November, bringing a variety of festivities to the Summerville Depot area each weekend. During December, the Summerville Santa Special Christmas Train Excursions offer a magical adventure with Santa and his elves, perfect for families, or groups. Ticket information can be found on the web at tvrail.com or summervillega.org.
Sloppy Floyd State Park, located just outside of the city, offers lodging with campsites or cabins for those looking to get away. Those inspired by art will find world-renowned folk artist Howard Finster's Paradise Garden a magical adventure. This is an attraction that folk art fans will not want to miss. Finster Fest, a celebration of folk art, Howard's art and the garden is held each year on Memorial Day weekend.
