Mounted police opt for equine transportation so they don’t have to deal with the squad car's wailing thirst for gas and justice. Avoid similar automotive appetites with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a horse-drawn wagon ride for two from Tender Grass Carriage (a $60 value).
Tender Grass Carriages’ coachmen take passengers on a rollicking one-hour wagon ride across the town of Estes Park and adjacent areas. A team of gentle clydesdale horses powers the old-fashioned wagons, drawing upon their origins as Scottish farm workers for strength and their built-in GPS systems for directions. Parties of up to 12 guests can traverse the spectacular scenery of Estes Park, where views of the snow-capped Rocky Mountains and abundant wildlife evoke sentiments of goodwill and bouts of nature-appreciative poetry.
