Winter Sleigh Rides in Western Pennsylvania

By

Nothing is quite as romantic -- at least for some of us -- as a good old-fashioned horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snowy hills of Western Pennsylvania. A number of greater Pittsburgh area farms and other operations offer romantic winter sleigh rides. Just remember, they need snow, so call to make sure they are operating first! Most require reservations as well.

Holly Hill Belgians
Located in the quiet farming community of Spartansburg, Pennsylvania, Holly Hill offers winter sleigh rides, as well as covered wagon rides, carriage rides and trolley rides. The picturesque sleigh ride winds through snow covered pines to a cabin where you can warm by the fire and enjoy hot chocolate. Located in Crawford County north of Pittsburgh and just south of Erie.

Overly's Country Christmas
This grand holiday light display at the Westmoreland County Fairgrounds also offers wagon and sleigh rides, weather permitting. Operates from mid-November through January 1 each year.

Seven Springs
Take a winter wonderland ride at the largest ski resort in Western Pennsylvania. Rides leave, weather permitting, from the North Lot.

Tim Swickrath's Carriage Services
Now this is the best! A year-round sleigh ride service that comes to you! Enjoy a romantic sleigh ride behind a Belgian draft horse with a Victorian costumed driver and a turn-of-the-century sleigh. When there isn't any snow, the sleigh has attachable wheels. Based in Pittsburgh.
