Take a Sleigh Ride - A Romantic Valentine Idea

Are you looking for a romantic Valentine idea to surprise your special Valentine? There are many ideas for nice valentine dates from dinner and a movie to a picnic in the park, but if you want to really WOW her with a romantic Valentine idea that is sweet and unique,consider a horse drawn sleigh ride. Is this the night you will propose and are looking for a special, romantic setting? Or are you celebrating a love of many years and want to surprise her with a special romantic evening?

Picture yourself cuddled up with your sweetheart under a warm robe in an old fashioned horse drawn sleigh. Your horse drawn sleigh will softly swoosh through a winter wonderland of snow to the tinkling of sleigh bells. Maybe there are snowflakes falling gently, or maybe the sky is clear and sprinkled with stars. What more do you need to feel as if you are in a Victorian picture post card?

No Snow? Take a Horse Drawn Carriage Ride

If you don’t live near a snowy area, a romantic horse drawn carriage ride is also a wonderful touch. Some cities, like New York City are noted for the romantic carriage rides through their parks. Other historic places like Charleston, St. Augustine, New Orleans and Savannah, Georgia offer carriage tours and drives through beautiful historic districts. Book well in advance if you would like a carriage featuring special amenities like champagne, snacks and romantic music.

Romantic Sleigh Rides in Winter Resort Areas

Sleigh Rides in winter resort areas may be even more romantic. A sleigh ride in Banff offers special sleigh rides for two with chocolates, liquors and an authentic buffalo robe for snuggling.

Other sleigh rides will stop at a bonfire for hot chocolate and marshmallows. If you live in a part of the country where there is winter snow, consider a sleigh ride for a very romantic and unique experience.

Where to Find Sleigh Rides

Where to find Sleigh Rides. If you would like to arrange a Valentine’s Day Sleigh ride for your sweetheart, many ski resorts offer horse drawn sleigh rides followed by mulled cider or hot chocolate back at the lodge in front of a blazing fire. Wouldn’t a late afternoon sleigh ride followed by drinks in front of the fire and dinner in a cozy rustic dining room be a perfect Valentine’s Day date?

Another place to check locally for “sleigh rides” to find a farm near you that offers sleigh rides.
