Carousels are wonderful.
- Little kids love them for their grandeur. Folks of a more genteel age love them for their grandeur.
- Little kids love to ride the horses and pretend that they’re real. Kids at heart love to ride the horses and pretend that they’re kids again.
- And unlike other amusement park rides, you go round and round without getting dizzy.
The fine folks at Travel & Leisure compiled a list of America’s Best Carousels. Lovely in its own right. What’s particularly special to me is that they use one of my photos to showcase the Flying Horse Carousel in Westerly Rhode Island. Shazzam! It’s number 16 on their list.
Want to know more about the carousel, read about my experiences. It’s a gem, but sadly adults can’t ride.
