People naturally feel romantic when they're bathed in mood lighting, whether it's the twinkle of fireflies, a full moon in a starry sky, or a slow, glowing flow of lava oozing through a downtown thoroughfare. Heat up the mood with today's Groupon for a private carriage ride through downtown Fredericksburg from Marriage, Carriage and More, LLC. Choose between the following options:
• For $35, you get a 30-minute ride for two (a $75 value).
• For $50, you get a 60-minute ride for two (a $100 value).
With the help of Marriage, Carriage and More, guests can clip-clop down Fredericksburg’s scenic streets in a horse-drawn carriage, listening as a knowledgeable guide recounts the area’s history during a 30- or 60-minute tour. Romance a sweetheart under the stars or fill an ungrateful station wagon with jealousy as an enthusiastic carriage captain regales you with factoids about centuries-old landmarks. Steeds will gallop past points of interest including the James Monroe Museum, Market Square, and Rising Sun Tavern, as well as old haunts of former residents George and Martha Washington. For an additional $5 per person (not included in the price of this Groupon), another couple or the other half of a tight-knit barbershop quartet can tag along to relish the rhythmic sound of hooves hitting historic pavement.
Old Towne Carriages
Whether it's a ride from the chapel to reception hall or a lift to George Washington's childhood home, Old Towne Carriages gets horses Tony and Patricia gussied up for the occasion. For special events or a horse-phobia intervention, they tow up to four guests around town on private rides. Alternatively, larger groups can hop on a group tour—historical, haunted, or holiday-themed—and soak up the knowledge and wit of city-certified tour guides.
