Hey bakayaroh

As of today we do not have any carriage businesses operating in Destin. You could try St. Augustine across the state from us on the east coast.

bbqman- this could be the business you've been looking for. All you need is a tophat, horse and buggy and you're good to go.

And, don't forget your grill! Now that'd be unique.

I just can't picture bbqman in a top hat. How about a straw hat, signature Joe Mammy tie dye shirt and sun glasses? The horse could wear them too. Well maybe not the shirt.

TexasCowgirl; You are right! It could be sort of a "redneck riviera" carriage ride; you know, instead of snow blowing all around, there would be sand glimmering on the ground; maybe chaise lounges on the back of a four wheeler pulling the horses in case someone wanted to tan while riding, complete with grill, ribs and beer! I think it would enhance tourism.

Great idea! That way bbqman could jump off as needed and tend to the ribs. That would cost extra of course.

If you care to take the drive, there are carriage rides availble down in "Horse Country" at Ocala! ;)

Just Google for "Ocala carriage tours"
