The best present a person can receive is love, but the second-best present is a box of puppies wrapped in money. Give a gift that is almost as good as a money-wrapped dog box with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a 20-minute Christmas lights tour on a horse-drawn carriage from Bakersfield Carriages (a $35 value).
Trotting past Bakersfield’s most impressively decorated homes, Bakersfield Carriages offers participants a memorable way to kick off their Christmas merrymaking. Up to five people may hop aboard a steed-powered carriage and soak in the colorful lights and reindeer-laden scenery as they roll through the neighborhood. Majestic, show-quality Percheron draft horses propel each 20-minute tour while exhibiting undeniable grace and beauty, unlike their lackadaisical Minotaur cousins.
