Three ornate horse carriages are available to take passengers on a slow-paced tour of the downtown waterfront. Horses Tiny, Henry or Duke will ferry you around Straub Park, or around several parks downtown or on a tour of your choosing for an hour. The tour operates most weekends and some weekdays during special seasons. Costs range from $80 for a shorter ride to $120 for the longer ones.
The tour is especially popular during the holiday season, when passengers can take longer excursions into the nearby Old Northeast neighborhood to view the twinkling Christmas lights.
The carriage rides are cash-only, but you are allowed to bring your favorite beverages on board for your tour.
Insider tip: If you want to bring snacks for the boys (horses), feel free to bring carrots or apple slices.
