Visited with the National Carousel Association Convention 9/12/18. Magnificent art work and sculpting created by Jeff Briggs. Truly a destination spot for all ages. The detail on the figures and the colors are amazing.
This is the coolest Carousel with a hawk in flight and a big giant sea turtle and owls and lobsters and I don't even know it all but it was really cool! The best part though was the operator! He was closing but he saw...More
A wonderful non-traditional carousel. So many animals to choose from and our daughter loved picking out which one to ride. Funky music played. And nice that adults get to ride free when they need to assist a child.
Was strolling past in early morning and there was this wonderful treasure of a carousel. Not like the ones with the tired old horsies, this was alive with all manner of land and sea creatures. Hawk, fish, butterflies, and more.
Very well done, very bright...More

The carousel is a great place to stop with kids in Boston. This is the most interesting carousel I have ever seen- not just traditional horses but all different animals. It's $3 in July so not too expensive. Definitely stop here if you are near...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
