Who doesn’t want to go on a horse-drawn carriage ride at Christmastime?!?!

There are three great options in Metro Detroit for you to take advantage of!


Downtown Detroit/Woodward Avenue Through the Downtown Detroit Partnership

Every Friday & Saturday; Nov 18 – Dec 30 from 6 – 11pm

$10/person & $40 for the whole carriage/a group (Credit or Debit Card Only)

First Come First Serve

New Year’s Eve Carriage Rides: Dec 31; 6-11pm

“Experience the magic of Downtown Detroit from inside an enchanted horse-drawn carriage. Carriage rides take passengers on a journey through the bustling city. With the dramatic backdrop of the city skyline and Detroit’s Christmas Tree, these charming tours are a wonderful way to embrace the holiday cheer in Downtown Detroit.”

While you’re downtown, make sure you check out the Cadillac Square Lodge, Tree & Ice Rink, and Christmas Pop-Up Bars!


Metamora, MI

Two Weekends in December: Dec 8 & 9, Dec 15-16 from 6 – 8pm.

Line forms outside of Metamora General. First Come First Serve.

FREE!!!! Courtesy of the Metamora DDA. (Although I’m sure the drivers appreciate tips!)

This is a yearly tradition in Metamora! It is one of the cutest Christmas towns in Michigan in my opinion.

Go put your name down for a table at the White Horse Inn. Then grab a glass of wine and do a little shopping at Metamora General. You won’t be disappointed!
