Visit Seaport Village’s Historic Carousel
The incredible, historic carousel at Seaport Village in San Diego is one of the most beloved attractions in the city. First opened in 1895, this 128 year old carousel is one of the oldest landmarks in San Diego. What makes this carousel so special is not just that it has been around for quite some time, but the intricacies of the Carousel itself.
This beautifully crafted carousel contains two horse-drawn chariots and fifty-four animals. The carousel carved entirely by hand, and has traveled from Texas to the West Coast over the years, finally settling in Seaport Village in San Diego in 2004.
Affordable Family Fun
The carousel costs $2.00 per ride. For children who are too small to ride alone, a parent can accompany the child for free. The carousel runs all day while Seaport Village is open. And even with potential lines due to the ride’s deserved popularity, the carousel seats well over 50 at a time, and the wait will never be more than a few minutes long.
The carousel is an amazing, enchanting ride through history for both adults and children alike, and is certain to be a memory that will last your family for a lifetime.
