Horse Drawn Carriage Co, Inc.
Two thousand-pound, beautiful draft horses pull the restored Falling Front Brougham carriage built in 1893, and the 1879 built Landau carriage. Having received the Heart of the City Award for recreational events in 1995, these carriages are one of the favorite sightings on winter evenings with their lanterns lit and sleigh bells jingling, or in summer with their array of finery displayed by daylight. Quarter-hour, half-hour, and other tours are available which depart from the Captain Cook Hotel Fifth Avenue entrance.
What a great way to see the city!! It's especially nice during the Holidays. The bells jingling on the carriage and the clopping of the horses' hooves make for a pleasurable, if not chilly, ride. Expect to get a lot of looks while you're riding. There were fleece blankets available too, which was an added bonus!! Reasonably priced to boot! I really recommend this to all locals as well as out-of-towners!!
