One of New York’s most significant landmarks, the Central Park, lures millions of visitors each year. It is immensely popular for tourists of all ages. Those who seek a bit of a romance or feel a bit lazy are keen to try local fabulous Horse & Carriage Rides.

Central Park is a safe bet when it comes to visiting New York City. It is one of the largest urban parks in the U.S. and for locals it nearly feels like paradise in the midst of one of the busiest cities in the world.

The park is open all year round and each season becomes special in its own right, especially thanks to the very rich cultural and artistic program offered. While some tourists who come to admire its reputed charm prefer to take guided walks, the more adventurous opt for an exciting bike tour. However, many who come for a romantic and relaxing experience appreciate the horse-drawn carriage rides.

Central Park Horse and Carriage Rides are available all year around and may vary depending on what visitors prefer. The Standard Carriage Ride is ideal for a group of up to four passengers and takes them to the park’s favorite landmarks, such as The Wollman Rink, the Pond, the Zoo, Sheep Meadow, Mall, the Carousel as well as the Dakota, where John Lennon lived.

The basic charge is $50 plus tip per carriage for the first 20 minutes, and each additional ten minutes cost $20. The standard rides are available without prior reservation and those interested may simply choose a carriage located on Central Park South between 5th and 6th Avenues.

Visitors to NYC who like to plan ahead may opt for the Pre-Arranged Carriage Rides. It is possible to make an online reservation for a discounted price and as for length, the pre-arranged ride is flexible and time is always negotiable. While these rides cost a bit more, they offer great value for money as they take longer and include additional sites.

Horse and Carriage NYC is simply another great way of exploring the city’s favorite park and there is nothing more romantic than an evening ride in a horse-drawn carriage in such a beautiful natural setting.
