Take in the Sights on an Austin Carriage Ride

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

If you are making a visit to laid back Austin, Texas, the best way to get around town is on a scenic carriage ride.   There are several to choose from and depending on what you want to see and how long you have to devote to touring, you can have your pick at the four packages currently available.

If taking a peek at the exquisite architecture that lines the streets of the city piques your interest, the Historic Homes Carriage Tour is just right for you.  Along the way, you will visit one of the last Victorian blocks to remain nationwide, and there are more than ten 19th century homes lining this street.  You will also see the Governor’s Mansion and the Capitol Building on your travels.  If what you are seeking is a quiet and romantic ride with a loved one, you will get just that.  Alternatively, if you are looking for more of a guided and narrated ride, drivers are ready and willing to oblige.

The Grand Carriage Tour will take you down historic Congress Avenue where you will catch a glimpse of the largest and tallest Capitol in the US.  You will visit the Victorian block as well, on your way to check out some of the other hot spots in the area.  Ride along the Colorado River and pass through the famous entertainment district to get a taste of the talent and showmanship that exists throughout the city.

Other carriage rides in the area include the Capitol Carriage Tour and the Town Lake Carriage Ride.   If you decide, however, that a carriage ride will not make your short list, the Austin in 90 minutes Tour will provide you with a well-narrated sightseeing journey around Austin by van, with views and background on the UT Performing Arts Center, Austin City Limits, O. Henry Museum, Zilker Park, and much more.

Winter is the perfect time to consider a visit to sunny Austin.  While the temperatures dip down in these months, they are much milder than elsewhere, making it the ideal location for those who wish to warm up a little without stretching the budget and going international.
