What are some other carousels in Ohio?

If your idea of the best day trips in Ohio involves going round and round on a charming carousel, you will want to visit Carol Ann Carousel in Cincinnati. The carousel is an amazing work of art featuring original artwork by Jonathan Queen with panels depicting animal characters playing in one of the numerous Cincinnati parks. It's a homage to the Queen City and a whirlin' good time!

Another carousel we love is the Carousel of Dayton Innovation, which you'll find at the Carillon Historical Park in Dayton. This is another awesome day trip in Ohio; it is a 65-acre park and museum that contains historic buildings and exhibits concerning the history of technology and the history of Dayton and its residents from 1796 to the present. One of the coolest features of this Ohio museum is the John W Berry Sr Wright Brothers National Museum, which houses the 1905 Wright Flyer III and is absolutely a must-visit for all Buckeye State history buffs! Oh, and there is a really cool brewery here, too, making it fun for the *whole* family ... not just kids!
