This carousel's 60 horses are arranged in the uncommon four-abreast style.
One of the six in the greater Binghamton area, this is a large carousel with wooden horses and a Wurlitzer complete with a live bass and snare drum. Excellent in both looks and mechanics. Well worth the ride and as always, the price is right. FREE. But please donate to keep up the maintenance of tis fantastic piece of history.

Roberson Museum and Science Center is Greater Binghamton's largest year-round tourist attraction. We feature the Historic Roberson Mansion, the region's largest public model train display, a Digital Planetarium and rotating exhibitions. Roberson is also home to the Binghamton Visitor Center.
We didn't attend a planetarium show, but enjoyed the rest of the science, history, and culture exhibits at the Center. The train room was a delight for our group of adults, and children who were there at the same time were fascinated. Although there was a baby shower going on in the mansion ballroom so we couldn't go in, the rest of the mansion was very nice. The price is right for families and friends, and there is something for everyone at the Roberson.

The Binghamton Mets, Double-A franchise for the New York Mets, play in this modern stadium.
We decided to stop while in town and catch a Rumble Ponies game and were not disappointed. The seats were great, the food was not as expensive as other parks, and to top it off the home team won. This is a nice stadium with plenty of seating. There is a lot of parking within just a short walk. After the game we were treated to an amazing fireworks display that just topped off the night. Overall, great place to catch some baseball.

This zoo is small. One of the highlights is usually the carousel, which is presently closed for repairs. The chalk art on the walkway was fun and entertaining! Staff is very friendly! The bear was asleep. Penguins are cute! The food at the concession stand tasted quite good. We had pizza, chili cheese dogs, pretzel and ice cream. They need to finish their renovations and get more animals.

This carousel's original Wurlitzer organ has been restored to working order.
A wonderful family outing to the zoo would not be complete without a ride on this free carousel. the Horsies go up and down as the carousel music plays, and there are even non-movable seats for the less venturesome. Right near the entrance to the zoo, and also a hop and a skip from the Discovery Center for little ones.;

Don't overlook this quaint home in a busy section of town. Our docent was very interesting and the home holds many beautiful details. Be sure to see the fascinating shades in the daughter's bedroom that are printed with the "old" view across the street!
