Horses were once considered man’s best friend, but after the invention of the dog, the horse was rebranded as man’s eccentric, oat-obsessed uncle. Take a journey with the kindest of kinsmen with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four tickets to a 30-minute historic Virginia City horse-drawn carriage tour from Happy Hoofers Carriage Service in Virginia City (an $80 value).

Happy Hoofers Service trundles history buffs and nostalgia lovers through Virginia City on a half-hour horse-drawn carriage tour of the famed silver and gold mining town. Cart along your three roommates or the rest of your barbershop quartet as you clip-clop through the Victorian-era burg renowned for its mansions, opera house, and red-light district identifiable by the crimson-hued sun perched directly in the middle of the street.

Knowledgeable tour guides will entertain vintage gossip enthusiasts with plenty of storied tales while pointing out authentic locales in the Old West–era destination, from the spot where Mark Twain began his writing career to the historic Fourth Ward School and Museum, where silver dollars donned mouthpieces and taught lessons during the teacher’s day off.
