We took our grandson to the Carousel. It was a beautiful afternoon, place was nearly empty, attendants were cordial, rides are well kept. Our grandson had a great time.

This is a gorgeous, historic restoration! Beautifully carved horses, and you can still grab the brass ring if you are lucky. Great place to spend a relaxing afternoon!
