Poll: Where is the better place for a carriage ride?

Having moved to Chicago from Montana, a place where horses are numerous, I initially found it strange that carriage rides are offered in downtown Chicago. Now that we have lived in Chicago for seven months, the sight of horses next to taxicabs and skyscrapers has grown on me. But, it makes me wonder where I would rather have a carriage ride.

On one hand, there's the novelty of a carriage ride in the crisp, open air of Big Sky Country. On the other hand, a carriage ride in downtown Chicago could be just as breathtaking (especially at night with the skyline in the background).

What do you think? I have started a poll in the sidebar. Vote early. Vote often. Polls close at 2:30 pm CST on Friday, April 30th (that's 1:30 for you folks in Montana).


  1. i think i'd rather ride a horse in MT, but the carriage ride would be cool in Chi town :o)

  2. I think it depends on the time of year.... or where in Montana lol. Winter in Chicago is supposed to be pretty wicked, but a carriage ride in the summer in a place like Wibaux, MT would be pretty lame, lol.

  3. I think there is an information problem here. How am I supposed to decide without having been to Chicago?
