Fairytales Come True with Carriage Rides at the Ritz-Carlton

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Good news for aspiring Cinderellas: the Ritz-Carlton New York has coaches that will not turn into pumpkins at the stroke of midnight. The prestigious hotel is introducing a new package that features an iconic New York City experience—an elegant horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park. This enduring tradition dates back to the 1800’s and is still at the top of any true romantic’s list of must-dos in the city. It’s a journey back in time that delights all the senses: From the sounds of sleigh bells and the smell of roasted chestnuts, to the glimpse of a full moon hovering over trees and skyscrapers. In addition to offering the most magical way to see the world’s most famous park, New York’s hansom cab drivers are truly colorful characters and make for knowledgeable local guides.

The “Central Park Fairy-Tale” horse-drawn carriage package The Horse-Drawn Carriage Package includes overnight luxury accommodations in a deluxe guestroom, a 30-minute horse-drawn carriage ride that departs across the street from the hotel, American breakfast for two at the hotel’s award-winning BLT Market restaurant, and even a special themed gift from The Ritz-Carlton to commemorate the experience. Rates start from $945.
