The Oldest Carousel In America Is Located Right Here In Rhode Island
Rhode Island has a rich, fascinating history. You can dine at the oldest tavern in the country, and you can take a ride on America’s oldest running carousel as well, if you’re a child. This summer, revisit your childhood and make a trip to the Flying Horse Carousel in Watch Hill. It’s the kind of nostalgic place you can’t help but love.
