The Yellow Rose Carriage Company has been in business since 1982, and it’s no coincidence that Valentine was the name of the company’s first horse. Lone Star Carriage Company has been in business since 1981, and their slogan is “Let’s horse around in San Antonio!” Bluebonnet Carriage Company was founded in 2005, and their mission is to make the ordinary truly extraordinary. According to their website, their Valentine’s package, a 20-minute tour of downtown, includes a cozy blanket for snuggling, a long-stemmed rose and a box of chocolates. Sign me up! Dark chocolates, please. I’ll bring the champagne. You may find the horse-drawn carriages across from the Menger Hotel, adjacent to the Alamo.
