The holidays are the only time of the year when it's appropriate to point at a dead plant and expect a kiss. Channel your mistletoe horticultural failure into romance, then reward yourself with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a holiday carriage outing for six from Elegant Carriages in Covington, Kentucky (up to a $75 value). The outing includes the following:
- A 30-minute carriage ride for up to six people (a $50 value)
- Hot chocolate for up to six people (up to a $12 value)
- A picture with Santa (a $13 value)
Tours run 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday through December 18 and again on Friday, December 23, and Saturday, December 24.
Riders steep in holiday spirit as they ogle festively decorated byways from Elegant Carriage's exquisite horse-drawn carriages. Groups of up to six holiday revelers climb aboard an authentic one-horse open sleigh to pose for a picture with Santa, yielding a print ideal for hanging on bare refrigerators or solidifying an alibi during Grinch break-ins. Private carriages captained by dapper equestrian enthusiasts maneuver the streets of MainStrasse Village while charges gaze out at the festive Old World décor. Chilly mitts warm themselves against rich cups of hot chocolate that launch dulcet clouds of steam like a furious pastry chef. Sleekly groomed steeds prance at the sound of sleigh bells as they move along the route, which is carefully guided to ensure maximum safety and sightseeing surprises.
