Horse-drawn carriage and sleigh rides are a wonderful way to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends. This year why not take a carriage ride through Downtown Cambridge and see all the holiday lights. Or enjoy a sleigh ride through the countryside followed by a hot maple coffee and pastries at Ma and Pa’s in Burton.
The following is a list of upcoming carriage, buggy and sleigh rides.
