Horse and carriage rides. Is there anything more romantic or sentimental? Especially for those once-in-a-lifetime occasions you want commemorate, but also for those otherwise normal nights out when you just feel like doing something special.
If you are visiting Fort Wayne or are just downtown for an event, why not book a carriage to make your night complete? Full disclosure, here. My husband and I have used two of the three horse and carriage companies I'll profile below. One on the day we got married- we rode from the church to our reception, and one on our anniversary 10 years later- we took a tour of downtown. Both times were wonderful, and both companies professional with outstanding service. Here are your three choices if you'd like to book your adventure!
