  Cheesy but romantic! Horse & Carriage ride!
by LisaMJ

Yes it's cheesy, but all the girls secretly want to do the horse and carriage ride around Central Park!

It was a bitterly cold morning, and we got there at 10am which is when they start arriving. I think it was $35 "plus tip" as the foreign gentlemen so politely put ;-) We hopped in and were covered by the blanket and off we went.

You could say we got a really good deal - the horse leading our carriage was one of the oldest I've ever seen, and so our trip lasted about 15 mins longer than most others because the poor thing was so slow!

Great memory though, and recommended if you want to get into your Mrs good books!
