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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Carousel riders must be under 12 years old, but you’ll have just as much fun watching it spin from June until September.
