"Horse and Carriage Ride" Central Park - Horse Carriage Tip by clueless83

  Bruno the horse and our driver
by clueless83

For true romantics, make like Carrie and Big with a horse and carriage ride around Central Park. Its not the cheapest thing to do but if you're with your beloved you won't regret it. We were in NYC on a college trip which included 7 of our classmates (among a coach load of randoms) so it was nice for me and my boyfriend to get some alone time.

We chose the cheapest option (and shortest ride) but unfortunately I can't remember how long the ride was for or how much it cost but you will see plenty of horses parked up in Central Park and outside The Plaza Hotel if you wish to enquire.

We had a lovely foreign driver who was luckily a good honest type because my boyfriend left his bag in the back of the carriage and when we came back later to retrieve it the man remembered us and kept it safe for us.
