“Carriage Ride was a highlight of the Historic District”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

Easy walkable area, great shops, restaurants and cool places to see but the Carriage ride we picked up on Market Street was the highlight. Modern day and historical information about the area, people and places. Our Driver Don was entertaining, very knowledgeable and happy to help people with suggestions about other places to go and see. Very worth while and fun trip. Great for kids and adults of all ages.
You pay at the end, $12pp for adults, $5 for kids under 12. Cash Only.

This a nice place to visit while in Wilmington --- lots of shops and restaurants. One night there was a live band playing on the waterfront. Good place for families.
