My mother came down last week from Minneapolis so that I could meet her newly minted fiance, Gary, and we took a short overnight trip up to St Augustine, which is the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement within the borders of the continental United States dating back on 1565. Several people recommended that we take an evening horse drawn carriage ride around the old part of the city to take in the sights. It was the best suggestion that we got!
We met Jason with the C. B. Hinson, Inc. Southern Carriages & Distribution Company. His trusty Percheron was named Connor and honestly we couldn't have had a better time! In order not to cramp my mother and Gary's style, the two of them sat in back in the carriage wrapped in a blanket and I sat up front with our driver and tour guide Jason.
Jason and Connor were the best! Jason shared incredible stories about St Augustine's past and the people that lived in days gone by. Because of the information that we learned about on our tour, we were able to plan a full day of sight seeing the next day, seeing and revisiting sites that we learned about from Jason.
If you are planning a visit to Historic St Augustine, I highly recommend looking up Jason and Connor at the C. B. Hinson, Inc. Southern Carriages & Distribution Company. This quality company is owned by United States combat veterans and in my opinion is well worth looking up. Contact information is:
C. B. Hinson, Inc. Southern Carriages & Distribution Company
Remember to ask for Jason and Connor! You will not be disappointed!
