What You’ll Do & See

Travel Along the Mississippi River to Experience the Best of Minneapolis

On our relaxing 90-minute horse-drawn carriage tour, we’ll take you winding through the North Loop. Here you’ll learn about the industrial kingdom that used to be ruled from within the very buildings that we will pass by. While we’ll technically be in the city, we’ll then take you to the River Parkway – the quiet and tranquil heart of Minneapolis. Take in some of the city’s best views with the backdrop of calming hoofbeats. When we cross the Stone Arch Bridge, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into a time machine. City streets will turn to cobblestone as we take you down St. Anthony Main Street. Don’t worry, though, as the carriage is still comfortable as it’s going over the cobblestones. This extended, all-inclusive tour is the best way to see Minneapolis in 90 minutes!
