Things to Do: Carriage Rides

Carriage rides provide a unique way to see Williamsburg, Virginia the former Capitol. Riders can get a sense of what it was like to travel in the days of George Washington and George Mason who might have rode together  for a session in the House of Burgesses. It is a great way to check out the sights and sounds of Colonial Williamsburg along with the noise of clipity clop of the horse’s hooves. TIP: Reservations are required and can be made at the Lumber Office next to the Greenhow Store near Palace Green. They must be made the day you wish to ride. Rides sell out quickly, especially during peak tourism seasons, so it’s best to get there at 8:45 a.m. when they open. Carriages run daily in the spring from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  Rides are approximately 25 minutes. The cost per person with a Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket is $12.50; without an admission ticket, the cost is $20. Children 18 months and under ride free.
