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.
