Captivating Carousels

There is so much to enjoy about a carousel--the whimsical appeal of the animals bouncing up and down, the happy sound of organ music, the sparkling lights reflected in mirrors. Many cities have a carousel--often in a park or a zoo--that residents can enjoy, and it is great fun to experience some of the more unusual ones as you travel the U.S. and the world.  Here are a few resources to help you discover some amazing carousels to visit as you go.

La Mesa, California: Los Tito’s; restaurant review

Los Tito’s

Situated in a strip mall, tiny Los Tito's is famous for making the best rolled tacos in town.  This crispy treat comes in several varieties.  The regular version is simple and straightforward with the rolls topped with avocado sauce and shredded cheese, while the potato version finds the rolled-up tacos smothered in tasty and colorful salsa fresca.  I favor ordering one of each.
