Free Stagecoach Rides in Placerville

 

The history of Placerville can be traced back to the Gold Rush Days. This was a time when cowboys, horses and stagecoaches were a part of the dusty trails in the foothills of El Dorado County. While those days are gone, you can still experience a little bit of that time by taking a FREE Stagecoach Ride in Placerville on the third Saturday of the month.

Davey Wiser and his crew offer this best kept secret, though he has been doing it on Historic Main Street and other locations in El Dorado County for 20 years. The rides are from 12:00PM – 3:00PM in Historic Downtown Placerville at the Bell Tower.

 

The 2015 Schedule looks like this:

  • January 17
  • February 21
  • March 21
  • April 18
  • May 16
  • No dates in June
  • July 18
  • August 15
  • September 19
  • October 17
  • November 21
  • Holidays – TBA

 

 

 

Need more fun in Placerville?

 

On that same third Saturday in Placerville from 5PM to 9PM is the Placerville Art Walk.

The Art Walk is offered by the local Main Street galleries and merchants who host art shows and late night shopping in Historic Downtown Placerville. Come join us in the demonstrations, refreshments, music, and so much more.

Good morning Tom,

Then a short ride to Gold Bug Park and try panning for gold!

Or to scenic Lake Tahoe; loved my visits to the area.

Make yourself a great day.

The Placerville free stage coach ride and art walk both sound like great events, and how fun to ride in a stage coach. I would be in line for that!!
