What can you do for a nickel?

With movies near $10 a person, amusement parks $30, can you do anything for a nickel? We found out you can. How about ride an old-fashioned carousel?

A nickel a ride, can't beat that! Here kids, I am feeling generous, take a dollar and knock yourselves out!
Giddy-up horsie!

A pretty fancy carousel for a nickel.

What about a quarter??

How about a train ride?

We like those in our family. Over the 4th of July weekend we headed about an hour south to a small town that has a really fun park with the $.05 carousel, $.25 train rides, and $1 miniature golf. Cheap fun, very American, and we had plenty of cash left over for ice cream. Can't beat it!


  1. That is amazing! What a great deal.

  2. Hahaha. I'm still laughing at your dollar comment and "knock yourselves out kids". That's exactly what I'd be thinking. That's great you have something like this relatively close by :)
