Carriage Rides in Charleston, SC: What to Expect

Never been to Charleston? You’re in for a treat! And carriage rides in Charleston, SC are the best way to experience our historic city. Here are just a few reasons your sure to enjoy your tour.

Plenty of Photo Opportunities

Charleston is a photogenic city, which is why it’s so good to explore it at the leisurely pace you’ll enjoy with a carriage ride. You can check out our photo gallery to get an idea of the scenery before you start. And once you’re on the ride, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to snap photos of historic Charleston landmarks. Which landmarks will you see? It depends upon your specific Charleston carriage route.

Plenty of Room

One of the most important characteristics of any good family vacation activity: pure capacity. If you have a big group, you’ll often find there are only a certain amount of things you can do before you have to split up. But our carriages are large enough to seat 16 at a time! If you plan in advance and book your carriage tour, you can bring a heck of a lot of people on the same tour. Enjoy each other’s company while enjoying one of the best ways to get around Charleston.

Protection from the Weather

If there’s light rain and no thunder or lightning, our carriages can go on as scheduled thanks to our roofs. The roofs also make a carriage ride a great way to beat the Charleston heat. Your entire tour will be in the shade. Of course, there’s a possibility that all-day rain could lead to flooding and cancellation, but there’s no reason to call off your plans for a little light drizzling. The same can’t be said for all outdoor-friendly activities in Charleston.

Stunning Draft Horses

Although you’re getting a tour of Charleston, you’ll find that the younger members of your group will likely be more fascinated with just one aspect of the ride: the horses. And why not? It’s not every day you get to be carried around town by a pair of horses. Our draft horses are a mixture of Belgian and Percheron that are every bit as strong as they are beautiful to look at.

Classic Charleston Experience

Carriage rides are a classic Charleston experience, and a tour with Charleston Carriage Works is often rated as one of the top ten things to do in Charleston, period. We’re thrilled to help our riders experience a Charleston tradition. No matter what day you decide to enjoy your tour, we’re confident you’ll have a great ride and see lots of beautiful sites.
