Horse & Carriage Rides
Give your weary feet a rest and take a leisurely Horse & Buggy ride through New York's Central Park — it's one of the most romantic... and popular ways to see the most famous park in the world.

We've enjoyed several carriage rides over the years — Spring and Fall are nice when the weather is more temperate. Winter time can be very romantic, cuddling under warm blankets.

Where to Find the Carriages
You don't need to book in advance to take a Carriage Ride (unless you want to book the Private Carriage Ride and Central Park Dinner). The carriages can be found lined up along Central Park South at 59th Street (between 5th & 6th Avenues), at the southern end of Central Park, across from the Plaza Hotel. Most of these beautiful horses are born and bred in Amish Country, PA.

NOTE: No reservations are necessary.

Year-Round Carriage Rides
Most 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.

Carriage Ride Policies
Carriages seat up to 4 people per ride. Pets are allowed. Gift Certificates are also available.

Carriage Ride Prices
Carriage ride prices may vary (and are subject to change), so be sure to ask the driver prior to boarding the carriage. Most rides are approximately 45 minutes. Longer rides are negotiable. There is no tax charged.  The cost is per carriage ride... not per person. Note: Reservations are required for pre-arranged carriage rides (approx 40 minutes to 2 1/2 hours long).

Manhattan Pedicab Rides are also available (2 ppl per cab). Tours run approximately one hour.

Outside Central Park
Carriage rides are usually not permitted outside Central Park, however, it's up to the individual carriage drivers to make exceptions.

We've seen carriages in the Theater District and Times Square at night, so it's worth asking, but don't count on it.
