  • For a vacation spot, with kids in tow, this is a good destination. Right off the beach, with a little ice cream spot inside the actual building as well as gift shop with a model of the old amusement park the carousel's organ was originally in. The lady running the concessions was sweet enough to give change for the penny machine. FYI, pennies older than 1982 work the best because they have more copper. The carousel horses are gorgeous and huge. It looks fun for everyone, both parents and kiddos, and the music sounds lovely. Also, there are other things in the same building that kids can do if carousels are not your thing. The only reason it dropped a star is due to the fact the carousel's tokens machine has high jumps. $3 for 1 token, $5 for 2, $10 for 5, $20 for 12. You can buy them from the cashier with a card, but since there were 3 of us it wasn't worth it. Great for kids, just kind of awkward otherwise. Worth the trip to see.
  • Always enjoy coming out for a visit every now & again. It's a popular local spot. Definitely a great place for an afternoon outing with family.
  • The kids had a blast. We were there for Thanksgiving visiting my daughter. The kids loved getting to pet the reindeer. It was wonderfully decorated for Christmas.
  • It's a great inexpensive outing that the whole family tends to enjoy. Besides the fantastic and enjoyable carousel, there are different themed exhibits on display and perhaps my favorite theme was the Legos. Not only were their interesting models put together for viewing but also tables for the kids, and myself, to play with Legos, build and create.
  • Silver Beach Carousel is a great family outing. It can be sunny or cloudy, since it is an indoor activity. They have a few games in the lobby area, as well as Michigan's largest kelidescope. There is also a small Children's museum/fun learning center inside as well. Pricing is very reasonable and the tokens for the carousel never expire. During the off season, parking is free. I suggest bringing your family along and making a whole day of Silver Beach. There's a lot to do in St. Joe MI, aside from the beach and carousel.(Pardon the selfie here folks, as well as the photo quality (we were moving.).)
