Palmetto Carriage Works sets the pace for the holidays – pre and post
Charleston, S.C. – Palmetto Carriage Works, the oldest carriage company to offer guided horse and mule-drawn tours in the historic city of Charleston, S.C., will be offering free carriage rides to share the holiday spirit, both before the celebrations get underway and then just about the time you’re ready for a horse-drawn tour of your own back yard.
To start, Palmetto Carriage Works has partnered with Toys for Tots. In the spirit of giving, anyone who leaves a toy at the barn on November 29 will be offered a free ride that day. Just bring an unwrapped gift to the Big Red Barn at 8 Guignard Street, and get ready to ride.
After the holidays, and a tradition celebrated six years now, Palmetto Carriage Works will again offer free guided tours to locals to thank them for all of the support over their 43 years in business. Starting at 9 a.m. on Sunday, January 31, Free Ride Day will provide locals the opportunity to catch a ride behind a quaint horse-drawn carriage around the historic city.
Carriage rides will depart from the Big Red Barn at 8 Guignard Street and will be offered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants should bring a license or proof of residency. Free parking, as available in the lot at Anson and Pinckney Streets, will also be provided to locals.
Established in 1972, Palmetto Carriage Works is the oldest carriage company in historic Charleston, S.C. Still family-owned and operated by the Doyle’s, the company offers guided horse and mule-drawn tours of Charleston’s downtown and residential historic district for the thousands of visitors hoping to take in the charm and history of the city in a more authentic way.
