On a brisk crisp winter’s evening, what could be more romantic than snuggling tight with your sweetie in a horse drawn carriage, wrapped in a warm blanket with a steaming mug of cocoa under the twinkling stars of a cold winter’s night.
Don’t let the frost on the pine trees in the morning fool you, Jefferson is a hot place to visit in the Winter. From romantic horse drawn carriage rides along the brick lined streets on Valentines to the rowdy party of Mardi Gras, Winter is a lot of fun in this small town. If you are looking for something more intimate, then enjoy a snuggle with your sweetheart by the fire pit in the Garden Courtyard of the Carriage House.
