A horse-drawn carriage is one of the most trustworthy vehicles, mostly because of the horse’s tail, which points east at dawn, west at sunset, and slaps the driver’s face if he loses his way. Take advantage of this classic form of transportation with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a 25-minute horse-drawn-carriage tour for two from Camel City Carriage Company (up to a $20 value). Tours depart every 30 minutes on Friday and Saturday nights, 6–10 p.m., March–December. Tours do not operate in January and February.

Camel City Carriage Company chauffeurs passengers through the heart of the Winston-Salem city center in an eight-seat, pony-powered jitney. Pulled by the strapping equine duo of Bo and Doc, the 25-minute tour winds through the tree-lined streets of downtown, offering grand views of Winston-Salem’s finest architecture and its physically impossible M.C. Escher Plaza. A leisurely savvy guide navigates the ride, pointing out the city's best restaurants and bastions for libations. Snuggle up to a loved one and let the gentle clip-clop of hooves provide a soothing soundtrack to your romantic excursion, as well as serve as an apology for previous jaunts in a palanquin shouldered by a heavy-metal band.

Camel City Carriage Company

With snowy manes aflutter in the wind and tawny haunches trotting leisurely along paved streets, Bo and Thurmond—the horsepower behind Camel City Carriage Company—dutifully ferry passengers around Winston-Salem’s city center. Piloting Bo and Doc on private tours, sisters and company founders Toni Phillips and Gina McClamrock, along with their father, Ron, happily regale passengers with interesting and invented area history as well as recommend restaurants for post-ride feasting. The old-timey carriage’s cover shields riders from inclement weather, keeping precipitation and rainbows’ ends from infiltrating tours.

First appointment was cancelled because of rain but my grandchildren throughly enjoyed the ride as a birthday surprise.
