(SAVANNAH, GA) – Carriage Tours of Savannah is pleased to announce its offering of limited complimentary carriage rides for active duty military personnel and veterans on Sunday, May 26, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. This initiative aims to express gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women in defense of our nation.

Owned and operated by Cara Marshall for nearly two decades, Carriage Tours of Savannah has become a beloved fixture in the historic city. Marshall, alongside her dedicated family, including her son who serves in the Navy, deeply understands the importance of recognizing and honoring the brave individuals who have served in the armed forces.

“As a family with deep military roots, we hold profound respect for our active duty military and veterans and their contributions to our nation,” said Cara Marshall, owner of Carriage Tours of Savannah. “Memorial Day holds special significance for us as we remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. It’s our privilege to offer these complimentary carriage rides as a small token of our appreciation.”

Throughout history, horses have played a significant role in military operations, serving as loyal companions to soldiers. From carrying soldiers into battle to transporting supplies and messages, horses have been indispensable assets. This historic connection between horses and the military further underscores the symbolism behind our carriage rides on Memorial Day, as we pay homage to the enduring bond between our armed forces and these noble animals.

The free rides will be available to active duty U.S. military members, veterans & their families who present their military ID and must be booked online in advance. Each ride will last approximately 30 minutes and will depart from City Market, located at Jefferson and W. St. Julian Street. Due to limited availability, reservations must be made online at:
