Bells on Bobtail Ring

Poor Bo (Diddly) - I bet he gets that one a lot around Christmas time! And I bet he doesn't mind one bit because he's such a sweet horse. 



Last night the Walkush family braved the cold to take a horse-drawn carriage ride in downtown Winston-Salem, and it was such a wonderful experience!



For $15 per adult and $7 per child ages 3-12 (kids 2 and younger ride free!), you can take a 25 minute ride around downtown Winston-Salem. Or you can choose to upgrade to a private ride for a flat rate of $50 for up to 4 people. Each ride is different and is narrated by the driver. They provide lap blankets (although we brought our own) and wine glasses or hot chocolate mugs upon your request.

Perhaps because we rode near the holidays, the carriage was decorated with white lights. And of course, some of the sites we saw were also decorated for Christmas already!


Camel City Carriage Company is a family owned small business. Last night, our driver was the patriarch of the family, and our greeter was one of his daughters. If you are in or near the Winston-Salem area on a Friday or Saturday night and would like to have a unique experience (perhaps when you visit for the Tanglewood Festival of Lights?), consider giving them a call to schedule a ride. You won't be disappointed!

This is always a neat thing to do in any city. We tried to do a carriage ride last year in St. Augustine on New Year's, but because of the holiday, they were booked. I didn't know they had one in Winston.
