America's best carousels: Crescent Park

W.A.Hamilton / Alamy

Crescent Park Carousel, East Providence, RI

This massive carousel has been the central fixture of Crescent Park since 1895 and highlights the handiwork of Charles I. D. Looff, one of the first and premier carousel builders. It was almost scrapped in the late 1970s, but a group of locals rallied to help save the carousel, which has since been added to the National Register of Historic Sites and Places.

Cost: $1; 75 cents on Thursdays; eastprovidenceri.net.
