This is such a wonderful carousel. The kids on the outer horses have the opportunity to grab the brass ring and if a child gets it, he gets a free ride! The horses are beautiful and the kids love it! Unfortunately, our kids are now...More
This is for toddlers and very young school age kids. The horses are very old and delicate. While beautiful, it is a small carousel (especially if you are expecting something similar to Six Flags or Disney's carousel). The line was not too long on a...More
I was here as a child in the summers from babyhood until mid teens.....the Merry go round was a staple of my childhood and is still fun......love to watch a new group of kids riding and hoping for the brass ring.....
We took my 3 year old granddaughter who has not been a fan of merry-go-rounds and she loved this! It was not fast and the music was not loud! The kids on the outer horses try to grab the brass ring for a free ride....More

I would have to answer as the other person did. Very little free parking for shops, otherwise paid parking for $10-$20. There is also parking on the off street but watch the signs in some spots you need a permit.
Restaurant with a view and things to do in Westerly (5 Replies)
I'll be meeting two friends from college in Westerly the first weekend in November. Looking for recommendations on a scenic restaurant where we can sit and talk on Saturday afternoon. Also, looking for some things to do. I've found the Flying Horse Carousel (although it says only kids are allowed to ride), along with a winery in the area. Are there gardens, hiking trails or something else we should see?

Been to W a zillion x but not up on the restaurant scene. The city isn't really on the water. The carousel will surely be closed then. Watch Hill is interesting to drive through and walk out on Napatree Point and on the big beaches there. There are other big beaches and coastal wildlife refuges in the area nearby, and close by Stonington, CT even more charming Colonial village, may have a restaurant with a water view type scene.
