Sit back, relax and enjoy a leisurely Horse & Carriage ride through New York’s Central Park. Day or night, it’s a romantic and exciting way to see the most famous park in the world.
If you’re looking for a memorable and romantic place to “pop the question,” consider taking an open-air horse-drawn carriage ride during sunset or after dark, under the twinkling stars — what better place to propose.
A charming carriage ride through Central Park is also a fun way to celebrate a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, promotion) with your honey, family, or friends.
We’ve enjoyed several carriage rides over the years — Spring and Fall are nice when the weather is more temperate. Winter time can also be very romantic, cuddling under warm blankets.
Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides are available year-round — although fewer carriages run during January (when it’s cold) and August (when it’s sizzling outside). Rule of thumb is if it’s “one degree above 90” or “one degree below 20”, they don’t operate. FYI, during the chilly winter months, blankets are available to keep you warm and cozy.
Carriages can be found lined up along Central Park South at 59th Street (between 5th & 6th Avenues), at the southern end of the park, across from the Plaza Hotel. Most of these beautiful horses are born and bred in Amish Country, PA.
Touring Central Park via horse and buggy is a fun thing to do whether you’re visiting NYC for the first time or experiencing it as a local playing tourist for the day. Enjoy your ride!
