Bushnell Park Carousel

Hartford’s treasured merry-go-round, with its 48 meticulously restored, hand-carved wooden horses—one of fewer than 200 survivors of carousels’ golden age—turned 100 in 2014. This year, she receives a fitting gift. The pavilion that houses this antique ride has been renovated with heat and indoor restrooms to enable year-round operation. Spins on this work of art remain $1. Best Century-Old Ride
