Varying times (see this link)
Yes, we know this isn’t Greenville but it’s so awesome we had to include it. You can ride in a carriage drawn by Belgian draft horses around the Biltmore for about 30 minutes and it’s so beautiful and romantic and memorable. The cost is $35/person and one child five years old or younger is free if they sit on an adult’s lap the duration of the ride. They have an hour-long carriage ride for $95/guest as well. The carriage rides are on the estate so you need to purchase an admission ticket.
