Princess of Tides brings fairy-tale fantasies to life with horse-drawn carriage rides hosted by an iconic princess. Rides depart from Princess of Tides’ King Street shop, with a trotting steed pulling groups of up to six people in an ornate white Olde Town Carriage Company vehicle, using only as much gasoline as it takes to run their emergency jetpacks. Cinderella herself accompanies riders on the 15- to 20-minute jaunts, sharing magical anecdotes and educating riders on correct shoe-tying methods. In the event of inclement weather, a beautiful carriage cover protects riders from rain and the jealous headlights of neglected autos.
