  • It's one of the most whimsical and beautiful carousels that I've ever seen. Worth a stop for kids who love animals. Three bucks a ride.
  • Great place to hang out/pass through during the summer. Kids like the carousel and there are good food options nearby. During the weekends in the summer there is usually some sort of market in the parks nearby too.
  • Fun little carousel/merry-go-round between Quincy Market and The North End
  • Closed during busy holiday season. Kids want to see the big Christmas tree lit up and go on a carousel...well that's not happening.
  • We were visiting Boston, because of an overnight layover on the way to California from Europe, and only had a few hours exploring downtown. Never would have expected to find a charming old-time (but brand new!) carousel right smack in the city! Very beautifully made carousel and our toddler loved his ride on the squirrel and petting the other gorgeous animals on the way out :)

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
