Baltimore, Maryland - the Steam Tug Baltimorehttp://steamtug.org/

Elkridge, Maryland (suburb of Baltimore) - a reproduction (visual only, unfortunately) of the Winans (actually Dickenson) Steam Gun.

Back to Chattanooga - the Steamboat Delta Queen is currently a hotel/B&B in the Tennessee River at Chattanooga.  We have an excursion steamer (the Southern Belle) as well, and it is hoped that someday the Julia Belle Swain may come back home.

Cheers!

     I would not even consider being at a bar called the "Edison" if it were the only bar on Earth (as you can probably tell, I am a rabid fan of Nikola Tesla)!

The name aside (I understand. That Edison fella was a dick.), you're missing out. It's truly wonderful.

yes, Sausalito is in California. Across the bay from San Francisco.

My great uncle lived in Sausalito, he always said that people who talked about SF or SanFran were in too much of a hurry to live there. He was a proper gentleman - engaged to be married for the 7th time at age 84, but sadly died before the wedding. Pardon my digression....

 Wow,

 I'm a bit surprised not to see the Winchester mansion listed for California.
