Activity Overview

Seaport Village Carousel is a historic carousel that was hand-carved in 1895 by Charles Looff. The carousel features 54 animals, two horse-drawn chariots and 40 hand-painted landscapes. The animals range anywhere from the traditional horse to a lion, teddy bear, giraffe, and even a dragon! All horses have natural horse hair tails. The carousel features the original organ from when it was first built. This carousel had six previous locations before calling San Diego home.

Things to Do

This historic carousel is a must see attraction within Seaport Village, a 14-acre waterfront complex.

  • Ride the carousel as many times as you would like with each ride only costing $3.
  • Close to a large shopping district and numerous restaurant options.
  • Plentiful grassy areas, so having a family picnic is an inexpensive alternative to the restaurants.
  • You can feed the ducks while navigating the many cobblestone walkways.

Seaport Village Carousel Insider Tips

  • If you park in Seaport Village's lot you get two hours of free parking with any purchase. It is only $3 an hour thereafter. Closest lot to the carousel is West Plaza.
  • Metered parking is also available nearby downtown with a two hour max. Meters are $1.25 per hour.
  • Weekends tend to be busier, as it is a touristy spot, so if you are local I would suggest visiting during the week.
