A recreation of a historic carousel that is well done and a joy to ride. Very distinctive and elegantly carved animals make this ride enjoyable. The animals ride up and down and children love it. When we were there, children could chose from an assortment of hats and figures to wear while riding, my grand children thought the hats were great. The music machine was made near my home town, North Tonawanda, and is a classic. Around the carousel are classica carnival machines. Also, the day we were there, a large leg display was set up. The carousel is next to the Curious Kids museum, another fun place for kids.

This unassuming building houses three excellent escape rooms and friendly staff. Our group of four experienced escapers booked two rooms here and ended up doing all three. Our game master gave a very thorough introduction, which was obviously geared for newer players (not a complaint). That type of introduction would have been very helpful when I was starting out. This place has very well designed rooms with high-end electronic elements and impressive props. They also have a hint/clue system I have never encountered before (in over 100 rooms) and I loved it. It allows you to determine when hints are available as well as let you decide if you want to take them and, most impressively, also lets you know if you are running behind in the room to let you know if you really need to take a hint yet or not. Love this feature. If you are spending time in West Michigan or driving up the lakeshore, I highly recommend making a stop here. You won't be disappointed.

Silver Beach County Park

Reviewed By PalmTreeSeeker4ever - Maumee, United States

We took our kids to Saint Joe’s as young kids 30 years ago. Now we are taking our grandkids to Saint Joe’s and boy, has it grown! We highly recommend this area... between Silver Beach pizza, the Compass splash pad, the wonderful beach with nice restrooms, snack stand and the carousel we couldn’t ask for any more fun. They were too old for the great playground right on the sand! The only down side is that I think the beach could be cleaner. So many cigar tips, and other debris. I think they need a beach Zamboni (like in Florida) to clean the sand... or people to quit polluting it! Hotels are very pricey near the beach. We stayed just off of 94 and it was much more reasonable. Only a 16 minute drive to the beach and they have free parking downtown if you don’t mind walking a bit or on the beach parking for $12.00/day. We liked that they had lifeguards posted also. We will go back again... ????

St. Joseph Lighthouses

Reviewed By theoljohnnyboy - New Florence, United States

A beautiful spot to watch the sunset in the evenings. The lighthouse is well maintained and nicely painted. The first portion of the pier seems to be newer and and is quite level, the second portion is older, worn and quite a bit more narrow. Details on parking can be found in the Tiscornia Park reviews.
