Flying Horse Carousel

Fodor's Review

At the beach end of Bay Street is one of the oldest carousels in America, built by the Charles W.F. Dare Company of New York City and part of a traveling carnival that came to Watch Hill before 1883. The carved woden horses with real horsehair manes and leather saddles are suspended from chains attached to the ceiling, creating the impression the horses are flying. Riders must be under 12.
