It's the oldest carousel in America and possibly the oldest way to keep kids entertained on a rainy day. As a kid I remember the thrill of grabbing the "brass ring" like it was yesterday and encourage others to give their child the same experience.

i was told this is the oldest merry go round in the country. I was skeptical, until i looked it up, and sure enough, i found this: "Brought to the Vineyard in 1884, it is the nation's oldest operating platform carousel and a National Historic Landmark."

We timed it just right - so that the ride was full enough that we could wait and watch for a round or two without waiting too long. It was great fun for everyone, and the brass rings added to the experience. There are some serious regulars, judging from the advance ring grabbing techniques that I saw. Well worth a detour when on the island (and it's cheap entertainment!)

Spend $2 and ride (yes adults, too!) a landmark- the oldest operating carousel in the country. As you go around you can try and snag a ring (it's pretty easy.). If you happen the get the brass ring, you can stay on for a free ride. Let's face it- if you're around here, you're probably on vacation. What's better than spending $2 to feel like a kid again?Recommended for:
