Mount Dora is a quaint city just minutes from our Leesburg-Tavares Hampton Inn. There you can find shopping, dining, art, festivals, and so much more. One of our favorite Mount Dora attractions is A Hitch’ N Time Carriage Rides. This is a local company that offers evening and holiday tours right in downtown Mount Dora (as well as other Orlando area locations).
The carriages used can take up to six adults or up to nine people depending on the size and weight of the individuals. Rides are typically 30 minutes but can be customized depending on your needs. Tours should be arranged 24 hours in advanced. There are several carriages available including a covered wagon and an elegant open carriage. Private 30 minute carriage rides are $100 but other group rates are available depending on the needs of the customer.
Carriage tours are a staple of the Mount Dora downtown Christmas season. Enjoy the evening lights and seasonal displays from a comfy burgundy carriage built for a cozy couple. This carriage is ideal for weddings and provide the romantic charm that can make weddings or proposals unique and memorable. To find out more about A Hitch’ N Time, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
