Carriage-drawn tours make sightseeing easier, since the gravitational pull of large, rotating wheels draws landmarks nearer. Employ gravity as Newton intended with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a one-hour carriage tour for up to four passengers from Ocala Carriage & Tours (a $125 value).
Ocala Carriage's horse-powered conveyances trot riders atop the tree-lined country roads that pass alongside awe-inducing fields of area horse farms. Passengers can take a seat in an old-fashioned carriage and begin the one-hour excursion through Ocala roadways, listening intently to the knowledgeable guide’s musings on local lore, carriage facts, and why no one makes feedbags in human sizes. As the carriage makes it way along winding roads, passengers gaze upon spanning fields that serve as the stomping grounds to thoroughbreds, tennessee walkers, quarter horses, and paso finos. Customers can watch carefully as the stunning stallions race alongside fences, wistfully whinny beneath shade trees, or exchange beloved Mister Ed quotes with significant others.
