Carriage Rides in Harbor Springs
There’s something new in Harbor Springs this spring, summer and fall! Horse and Carriage Rides throughout the downtown area and FREE rides up on the Bluff overlooking Little Traverse Bay. The idea for the carriage rides came from local stable Brek-n-Ridge Farm’s owner Karin Reid Offield.
The Horse and Carriage Rides downtown are planning to begin in late May and throughout June. The Rides will start up again in mid August through mid October. The days of the week for the Horse and Carriage Rides will be posted on the Harbor Spring’s websites soon. The downtown Horse and Carriage Rides will charge a fee for the service.
The rides depart from Bay Street near Stafford’s Pier, The New York Restaurant and Bar Harbor in downtown Harbor Springs every 30 minutes. Other stops and loading zones are near the Island Bean Coffee Company, the Wooly Bugger and the loading zone by Turkey’s Cafe and Pizzeria. The Harbor Springs Historical Museum is also on the route.
Free Horse and Carriage Rides on the Bluff above Harbor Springs are being planned to begin once a week in July through early August. The departure area will be on Lake Street at the Harbor Springs IGA and the Pet Pantry. The rides will travel along the bluff overlooking downtown Harbor Springs and the harbor. Stay tuned for more information! Local merchants sponsor these free rides.
