When I discovered that there was a Carousel on the National Mall, I knew we had to ride it. Even though it costs $3.50 per person, it still seemed worth it. Scarlett LOVES carousels (or “carouselfs” as she calls them) and was absolutely giddy when we told her we were going to ride one.
It’s a pretty cool location, with the Washington Monument on oneside and the Capitol Building on the other.
The carousel has old-fashioned charm. Tom took the kids to ride while I took pictures.
And it was super fun for a 3 and 4 year old. They waved every time they passed me.
Scarlett wanted to go again as soon as the ride ended, but we told her we would take her to the carousel at Clemyjontri Park, which is half the price. I’ll ride that one with them! She agreed and said a loving goodbye to her white horse that she named “Pink-Blue.”
It makes a nice summer memory.
