Nashville, Tennessee is best known today as America’s capital of country music. Music City, as it’s affectionately known, draws musicians of all genres to play in its acclaimed venues and historic streets. But as one of the great southern cities of the United States, Tennessee has also long been a center of education and commerce. Since its 18th century roots, many a cultural and historical landmark has been built around the city. The historic core of Downtown Nashville is a joy to explore, particularly in a suitably traditional manner: by horse and carriage.

Nashville carriage rides come in a variety of shapes and sizes, such as the more traditional open carriage or the fanciful Cinderella-style, gilded pumpkin approach. They are a great, and occasionally romantic, way to explore Nashville, with narration often provided by your driver as you pass the city’s landmarks. Here are three of the best Nashville carriage rides, taking into account previous guest reviews, treatment of the horses and the value for your money.
